COALITION Frozen, they placed heavy footprints on hard-packed foliage, etched ice; the withered bark stretched around in slanting lines, near-collapsing. Moving these weights, one step, two; these notions in a February mist; regrets like the broken skies above, where clouds drift dark with mingled smoke from fires marking from whence they came. But no scars give away their crime; forged steel purpose in their mind; enclosures rigid, fences reared, and minutes pass, drift, into years... That one summer, where they fell together, interloping, eager-eyed; all promises once carved in ink; erased and shredded, burned, buried. Night now draws on, the stars are veiled, for no lights would be seen shining upon them.
