Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Two Koreas

Some old wounds 
can never be sutured 
and email is always

the wrong needle to try.
So is the phone.
Fly to your daughter.

Tell her thirty years later
it's time to end the war 
between two Koreas.

You're sorry you didn't attend 
the wedding she never had.
It's not her fault she looked 

so much like her mother.
That was another war
death would end.
