    Only commentary I could offer would be praise for your poetic exegesis though not religious yet certainly spiritual.and downright virulent. Huzzah. Your ‘remembrance’ is of a incarnate sensitivity.

      Thank you Steve.

      In a world at war, such as ours, those who speak loudest of their desire to visit violence upon others are rarely those who actually know how to do it. And then the Soldier returns from the field, bent and cracked in a few places, misunderstood and feared by the same people. The lessons of the past are either long forgotten, or “remembered” in a rebranded form, only to be viewed as through a glass, dumbly.

      Things are spiraling toward a sharp period of adjustment, and if that’s not an inspiration for poetry, I don’t know what is.
