Poetry (Day 91): Before the Battle

     Before the Battle

 

Two plantation armies
face each other
from either side
of the highway.

The ranks and rows
of pine soldiers
stare with stoic patience,
waiting for the inevitable
collapse of civilization
so they can begin
their creeping charge
across the no-man’s land.
