A Poem by Jason D. DeHart
Child of the Rebellion
a poster loaded with anachronism,
cry of the hawks,
a young person with fresh complexion,
gun thrown over the shoulder.
I grew up with guns, rifles like artwork,
watching the men clean barrels
with long, strange brushes.
I do not listen to their hollow metallic
I barely notice the flag over the child's
shoulder, but I do make mention
that the clothing is pristine, not yet
stained with fear or age or wisdom.
