SOMETIME AGO IN ITALY

Wife dusked

Husband mourned

Friar pawned

Father dawned

Blacksmith and white

Betrothed templar and knight

Sybilla put out the light

But it was just the night

Desert sands

The army bands

A leper’s lands

“Kiss my hands”

Swords and bombs

Bloods and guns

Gongs and webs

Songs and gods

“Asalam alaikum Brother”

And so with you stranger
