We do like a good story
where the end is known
even amid new questions
last battles excite
as though they are last
every war intends
to be a last war
a war to end war
a war of victory
we do so want
to hear a first resolution
resolutely resolving
without a doubt
right order
nor do we desire
a reminder
of a last battle
in light of a first
won in a 40-day
silent resetting
of Living over Dead
no matter how debilitated
reclamation rests
awaiting an acknowledgment
of how bad it has gotten
it’s never too late
to start a compost heap
of lost chances
that we might look
upon them warned
