WE HUDDLE

We huddle embraced
reaching to see a far
missions all retraced
opened bloody scar.

We huddle in cold
to remember trying
how we became old
without ever crying.

We huddle darkly
no one sees us
eyes blinded partly
none to make a fuss.

Naked huddle we
exposed from all
no witness to see
or memory to recall.
