Galloping iron enclosing
The end of an era unnoticed
The last of his kind, he deeded his wealth
I read it through, devouring as if starving
They describe how frail we are
They want to help, but
It stains down your cheeks
And they’ll lift you off the ground
People see what they wish and fool themselves
Only mid-hunt does the hunter love the game
Made bland and tasteless from the moment of thrown rice
Possibly later you might come around
Keeping little hope like a flame on a wicker
Failing and flailing it was all but well
Zombied and flushed they applaud anyway
Weary, I stiffen my warrior spine
And leave the arena with composure
In his final fall, when spring arrived, only flowers
It still feels like being part of an army
Fighting a war on the moon
And I am the soldier
That stands on Earth and throws rocks at the sky
Because at least I am aiming
