Shoes at the gate

after Richmore Tera

At the river,
you drink to friends lost.
Dog tags are not trophies.
Shoes at the gate are not talismans.
Questions are markers of struggles seen
but not understood, not engaged with
because other things
had to be done first.
Questions are promises made
that can no longer be kept.
