CHROME CARGO BOXES

I went shopping today
… just to get away
Outside the auto parts store
I saw close to the door
chrome cargo boxes
for pick-up trucks beds
on sale today
… chrome cargo boxes
all piled on display
and they all looked to me
… just for a second
like coffins heaped
… in disarray
Fallujah has been much
on my mind today
