5/4

Here’s a wonder –

boys, practised

in playground

battles & the cruellest

violence

regard Gods-

kings of all life

& violence

reduced to a twist

of mouth

and muscle –

to a grotesque

parody of power

a punchline

in the bonding

of boys hellbent

on war

meanwhile

the dog

muzzled,

mightier in heart-

space

& loyal friendship

slows, lowers

passes the scene

without speaking

at all
