James Reid

Minds. Ww1(1914-1918)






Nibbles

nibbles away

afraid, scared

day after day

nibbles.

single sniper shot

worst of the lot

whispers past.

machine-gun rat-a-tat-tat

get used to that

but in little bits

cuts, hurts

and nibbles away.

nibbles away

FEAR,

nibbles

away.


JAMES REID.
