On an edge of earth I stood


Wreathed in flames that gave no quarter


Sweltering breath split by the beckoning sheen of steel


A resonant collision of infernal force and inexorable will


On an edge of earth I stood in stillness


And so did the cadence of time


in this frozen portrait of conflict made from


daunting portents of uncertain endings.


On an edge of earth,

as if a book were finished being read.


Where everything has always ever been for you, and has always ever


driven me forward


Where I still stand to weld fear and courage.
