Soldier Boy

The soldier came home from the war
without himself

he kissed his absent wife
hugged thin air

which took the place
of his children

went to visit
his disappearing parents

in their untouchable house,
and the townspeople

welcomed him
with what was left of empty

he was not concerned
that he didn't really care

he did the best he could
through no fault of his own
