Verses for Veterans Remembered: Matthew Borczon 2019

The soldier adjusts to life with only one arm
can’t
tie
a
tie
can’t
hold
his
child
can’t

adjust to life, the soldier with only one arm.

the Marine woke up without legs
gone
socs
shoes
pants
gone
kneeling
standing
walking
gone
without legs the Marine woke up.
