In-their-net of Prison Sills

After Garnet

Warriors born
on bed sheets, dreaming
gold plaques, won
by screaming
armies, sometimes
heroes, sometimes
hieros, sometimes
De Niros, pointless
arrows pointing
poverty, famine,
cruelty, equality,
romanticism, cadaverism, 
pointilism, pontifichasm,
passing
fourth-hand wisdoms
third-hand aversions
second-hand poisons
first-hand prisons, birthing
twiddling babies
born warriors
