Poetry by Carol Blair

Welcome Home, Ken Wolfe

Vietnam Veteran, Silver Star

I caught you,
Your look of hatred.

(I was faster at turning
Around, than you were,
At pretending to trust.)

I caught you,
That deep, black,
Glistening, searing stare,
That told me,

You see yourself as a killer,
That you would kill again.

I caught you,
And I love you,
For letting it happen.
