I am freeing them
you're leading them into a war they can't win.
this brazen age is more fragile than you think, archie.
every age is, but every life is fragile too
There is a new age coming. An age of poetry and iron.
every age passes, I hope this new one is kinder than this world
it will be, and it won't be. The whole cosmos is struggle
but if we sing sweetly enough it's all worth while.
Our very meeting
with each other
is an omen
Not a rampart held
The good natured need to no cutlery in their vocabulary
