flags wave on the precipice
lead down to the sound
of horns and harps

unknown songs
dictate the pace
heavy boots
thumping slabs in time

flags wave on the precipice
music plays
from deep historic drains

how little we know of these others
these patriots using our names

speaking of indivisibility
from out on the other side

from Strasbourg (Salmon Poetry, 2010)
