I Will Wake Again in Darkness
by Mark Mulligan

He said it once.
It's a crusade.
Then his handlers made him stop,
Thinking the word might alarm
Muslims and others attuned
To religious conflict
And warring.

I thought it was an oil war
He wanted.
To support his business friends
And satisfy our appetite.

But now I see:
He charges "Evil
"As a Christian judgement,
Adding religious purpose
To his qu I will wake again in darkness


Another jet drops homeward Crooked as a drunkard's ramble
Its amber eyes dim the Indus night
Its tiger-roar breaks my reverie.
How can such fat geese become spears?
Pierce the flanks of landmarks,
Dump them into our arms like best friends dying
Shedding flame, smoke and blood -- body parts
like tears?

The rubble buries everyone unbiased
Monsters, victims and heroes alike,
Step pyramids cut in negative to lift out their ashes
Borne away reverent, for sacred payback.

I will wake again in darkness
And make up my quiet bed
Like a night-dropped agent
Who bundles up his parachute
And stretches an ear for friendly shadows.



We must allow ourselves the joy of loving through life more than we fear our living.
T.B. Stone
