2020-10-02 – Five of Swords

slithering back from
a doomed day’s
mission,

not so fresh,

another swift return, tail
tucked in prime
position..

for more scalp grating to
sort out where all
my shiny virtue
failed me,

to proper honor
battle’s dead .

it’s as fine a time as
any to hang up
my sword..

maybe climb
a tree..

to dream a way
beyond the wounds
and graves..

++++

..and past stains on
field where once
stood sure
victory.
