(RIP Leonard Cohen, with us always through your vocal wings. And thank you Veterans)


The lady was sculpted

as an avenue to home

orthodox steps on her back she's bear

but when souls treading o'er 

felt despondent of care

they'd tell that young woman

'There's no future here'

The lady was broken

 ground of rubble and stump 

as forward men pushed into the clear

 with strong arms lifting

each log for the squaring

she became home

and those pathways, her heirs
