Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Christina: Red Dust

RED DUST

Red Dust -
everywhere -
in all the pictures that you see.
On their faces
on their clothes
on their boots
in their hair -
everywhere.
Red Dust
mixed with Red Blood
makes Red Mud -
Red dirt as far as you can see.
I think when he came home
Red Dust rubbed off on me.
