Marine Mirror Image

Marine Mirror Image

In formation he stands before her
A Marine mirror image.

Silk and perfume
camies and rifle
and shared smiles
and love.

Her innocence,
his lack of it
knowing the truth about the world
having just returned.

The glass fades
and the images melt together,
embracing
together at last.
