He wrote of the war
The way that
A poet’s daughter
Writes of suicide

‘The shells are still falling
As I’m cooking breakfast.’

Every soldier conscripted
And hammered into the
Mechanized machismo of expansion

More so
Any God
That allows artillery
To rain upon nursery schools
And apartment buildings
In Mariupol
