Brian Rihlmann writes


it may be
that all it takes
is enough time locked up
inside the padded cell
of yourself

peering through
a narrow window
with chicken wire

to become as a soldier
huddled in a foxhole
while bullets rip the air

or a child covering her eyes
as floorboards creak
and a shadow darkens
the light under the door
Self-Portrait in Foxhole -- Howard Cook
