uncooperative history

The meaning
Behind the eyes
Eludes
And so with a
Fancy camera
I take this artsy photo
For my digital brain
And wonder
How histories
So effectively erased
Can gaze back
So defiantly
Refusing to tell
Not giving up
Not this time
Not even to a soldier
Who traded an iron gun
For a plastic camera
And gave up reconnaissance
For a tourist's gaze
