peace offering by Ashley Makue

i have decided that
love may no longer
summon me to war
i have laid off my troops
blood-bathed my body
clean of all sin
i will no longer kiss
like breaking my law
or make love
like being broken into
i will clear my eyes
of all my specks
and then i shall see you

you see
these are the days
of the sweet treaty
