The Art of War


Fight is fight
when heart is hard
fight is not fight
when must-do things
are divested of passion;
nothing can distract
or detract
gaze is made of focus
movement of economy -
that’s meditation
a transcending 
of kill for joy of killing
the ill-gotten ways
of human history
where desecration is 
name of game;
but this is rehearsal
a dance 
a performance 
of things out of step
with brutality and plunder
and yet
this is how wars have been won
centuries ago and yesterday too,
this is known
though un-acknowledged.
