Petty Warriors

I just think it’s funny how
You betray yourself
With grandiose statements and the
Metaphysical posturing of a man
Overwhelmed by the duties of
Being a man not realizing that it’s all
Street-based performance art in the end
More and more I choose to
Honor the cracks in our conversations where
The light of your love
Filters through nearly cowardly and
Shivering childlike in my terrain
I am sorry you have abandoned
Your courage
I am sorry that you have passively
Watched my warrior love blossom
Ready to go to war
Only to sit down in the field and announce
That the true war is internal
And can only be waged within
I am here but I will not
Wait for you here
