Once were heroes

once knew flight

the heady air of freedom

the giddy brightness of the sun.


Once there was a glimmer

and then we lost.

There was a brief ambition

drowned in nice but empty words.


First we had coherence, the fullness, the whole

but we heeded it not

we mocked

thinking the circle is easily closed once again.

Then we were left with snippets

odd scraps to fight over

all but forgot.


There was once love.

Now its waxen wings melted

and its feet ground to dust.

    But now you have two.
