Rollergirls 05 – Rollergirl Holocaust

Cannons, broad turned into the blank sky
Gas-soaked and set on fire
Shot across flowing red rocks
A green-stemmed beginning

Soldiers, complaining, cans and packs swing
Former crops hold the last blood
Rag-wrapped widows sort bones
The truck waits for a wrench

Flags, symbols snap over shoeless tears
Grateful for the memory loss
Hot wires keep secrets in
All else fails to bind
