while a small world away
from the same slice of the state
her ex-husband
ever so casually settles in together
with her first boyfriend
for a meal
in a U.S. Army mess tent outside Baghdad

despite the name tags, one apparently
doesn’t recognize the other, who does
and despises him all the same

after all, they’re from different units


That’s what Woodpecker said.
