when we stopped
thinking about
the deformities of
the last thousand years
and the division
of the world
between the heroic
and the many

the new perspective was
but remarkable deeds
gave meaning
and reinforced
the stories
long told
around campfires

we moved slowly
and understood
all more clearly
that there is nothing
to explain
a love so pure
passionately slammed
against a backdrop of menace

the lucky ones say
that the myth
endures because
the alliances established peace
but they have not observed
those left behind
and pushed
into weakness
