"A failure of the imagination"

> Some moments cauterize the blood,
> whether
> a red sunrise over a frozen lake,
> or
> making love.

> Memory calls them like prayers,
> like war,
> writing history
> over peace,
> its advancement, its inertia
> breaking out
> from phyrric victory
> to full scale retreat.

> Ghosts battle in heaven
> in the name of their gods
> -rights infringed, thousands dead -
> haunting romance at the edge of 
   reason
> constructing limits
> on true freedom
> where once were buildings,
> called guilt and fear.
