The poem explains that these men can only see and think blood and have become living resemblances of the dead from the war. “ Sunlight seems a blood-smear, night comes blood-black; dawn breaks open like a wound that bleeds afresh. Thus their heads wear this hilarious, hideous, awful falseness of set-smiling
