Gone Is Gone

an apparent tragedy
is visible here
above these caved sockets

whether a lost battle
or a won war
created this cloven skull

is unimportant
as this is
the end product

what is present:
bone
what is gone:

all memory
of any color
once found here

any life
any love
both long gone

so no matter
how this fatal wound
came to be

whether in victory
or defeat
gone is gone

and
dead
is dead
