cursing softly

 

shuffling slowly down the gully

cursing softly at the stragglers

he stopped to catch his breath

and looked down towards the farm

 

she’d be busy, happy

making supper for the family

 

watching the smoke drift lazily

he moved on, remembering

how it once was between them

 

he cursed softly at the stragglers

 

and at the memories
