THE SOLDIER

-I-

 

Stiff necked fire

Insight

The blades dissolve

Tossing unlawful laws

Undressing intentions

 

The crimson shame of apathy

Is but a lost faith

Outstretching to the open marketplaces

Of dulled consciousness

 

 

-II-

 

Bargaining with destiny

On the rooftops of false prophets

 

Preening the skim

From daily survival

 

Uncertainty grows and grows

The quicksand of their shaggy mergings

I am left with limbed doubts

Trembling some concise access

To deserve the Resistance

 

I am the stiff necked soldier
