The Picture

Cross the arching footbridge

To the greener side

The other side’s cliff walls

So uninviting

The picture suspended on the wall

In the bedroom

Brought back from Korea

From a foreign Viet Nam trip.

A trophy.

Who had looked at that picture

Over the years.

That bode a good future

Positive feedback

After the war

Had long since ended.
