Mid East Metaphor

matador skewered by the horn
reverential recital of courage
and loss
cession of pain is a concession that came
with death
for the one’s whose convergence from boyhood to man
happens so young.

Indignation and blame
and the purpose is never
clearly explained

A rational device
a needed voice heard
and understood
by minds of reason now lost in refrain
while their myopic world is awash in pain

Edification will stop on a pier
like the unfulfilled bridge
of the River Kwai.
