Even after death, the self is contained

in a sheath of armor

A plastic rose defies decay

above an empty womb

Preservation of the outer

causes sterility of the inner

Yet we stand in reverence

of the the battle. The hero

who offers life

and takes life in valor

who said, “I have won this war”

for you

The sword powerful only

by the hands

now broken

to reveal the heart
