Bagged Death

Photographer: Abd Doumany

On a cold, dirty floor

wrapped in plastic,

tied with twine,

lies a body

 

Just one death

in war’s myriad

of deaths

amid years of conflict

 

Just one victim

of a power struggle

belittling

others’ lives

 

Just one carcass

No longer a person,

individual,

or citizen
