from The Pagan States by Randal Prater



The absence of blood and skin
Around bones that we try to fit in
Listen less and you’ll hear much more
A minimal dance in the score
An aural thank you
For letting us take you to
The battlefield

They will stand by you
They will fall with you
You always die alone

The hollow is where we’ve been
Without hope that the fire will give in
Speaking less and saying much more
A silly romance with the war
And yet we thank you
For leading us safely to
Elysian fields

They will stand by you
They will fall with you
Some will leave alone
