The Toys Of War

where braves are no longer welcome,

or this, our island of explorers 

who now wish these sea shores were

man delivered a sun

to bloom and scorch upon her loam

untold shadows

 

no fire this time in shattering waves

though now, as then, so many souls

vanished from this tangent

 

and the swallowed star,

made on earth, extracts the same
