In Essence?

 
(for John McMurtry*)

We are Undone
each to each
one to one

 
*
 
at crux
the male ego

 
will not give
in
will not let go
 
the eternal
casus belli
cross the heart
and hope to die
 
fast it is
and furious
intractably
injurious

 
whether Russia
or
Ukraine
the very same
alien grain
 
*
 
all wars
originate
it is the
common human
fate

from this will
to retaliate
 
so maybe
women
hold the key
to redress
masculinity
the bane
of human history

to break the
spell
and set us
free
 
*
 
whence do I
repeated
plead
let women
lead
and men take
heed

 
let women
act
let women
speak
they shall
find
what men but
seek

 
women know
no borders
women brook
no orders
let alone
disorders
 
peace has
been
their legacy
in all of
human herstory

 
*
 
one cannot be
too sure
it is but
intuition
pure
or mild
epiphany

 
could be
our only
hope you see
to forestall
catastrophe
 
as we lurch
from war to
war
in corybantic
anarchy
 
*
 
Else are
we All
Undone
each to each
and one to one

 
* Late Canadian philosopher, noble spirit, and my dear friend
