No body’s meaning

Meaning is evanescent like men,
Like when the brother army man
Falls to shell in anonymous war,
A war for the icy wastes of a hill.

We search an icy night’s remains
Where he would have fallen red
To the white anonymity of snow,
For meaning that never was his
Or for that matter anyone else’s.
