In The Bottle by Devlin De La Chapa

spray, spray
those little chemicals from once upon a Viet Nam daydream
on the fields, on the trees, on the grass, on the rocks
where the little American children played
good Soldier, bad Soldier
on soil now
unforeign,
forgotten,
forgiven
by us, perhaps there,
but here, in the bottle
time never evaporates
