Celeste In the Heat of Defeat





The want to live and roam in packs
Outside of the grand illusions
Of stories escaping domestication
The discovery of heroism

Thrown out and swept away
Rules regarding behaviour and conduct in conflict
Attention to the role and responsibility of group expectations
Once belonged now defeated

Their behavior was abhorrent
My behavior is exemplary
In honor of their fortitude

Formed in shelter and missing when it counts
Combatants nolonger seen playing together
A conspiracy of self
No longer the victim
Now to the enemy broken and in respect

Acting in avoidance of each other's need
With no want to reconcile
Strike with unresearved violence
Feast in the power to inflict
In the rightful place of order and fear

The home comming return
The passage to smite
The awareness gained in loss
Now in admittance and reconstituted
