David S. Pointer- A Poem

            Discontinued Transportation Corps to Europe

They still call the Korean Conflict the
Forgotten War, but my great uncle Oscar
didn’t want to talk about WWI or what
came before all that either to include the
precursor to the FBI killing its own citizens
in steam age annihilation vapor as Uncle
Oscar continued to turn his head away onto
an interior wall as if it were a big passenger
window out a troop train saying “they told
me about a million horses sailed overseas
but only a few ghost ponies came back”
