The Washerman

Silently watching morning's brilliant
light tear the dense clouds
I forgot the sky and
the aching hand,
Looking at the wrinkles of the
tearful reflection in the water
I forgot my age
Seeing the bloody shadows
in the swaying greenery
I forgot the corpses' present
and started thinking something else
Dissolving the clouds' basket in the blue sky
I am washing myself
