Lost in translation

The music raises its head
to an imaginary sky-
trying to get us to trade.
A flower in a bottle,
a husband and blood
for our time.
We all know the
promised land.
But for those who
have bled, there is a
death grip on the grail.
And still a drumline pulse,
to greet a new-born land.
