i’m not demanding preconditions

or an absolute capitulation

i don’t advocate a treaty

or a memorandum of understanding

we needn’t meet on neutral ground

time to melt down all our weapons

i woke up to your breathing softly

and surrendered to your winsome prison

willing, falling, giving all

or nothing

without negotiations

the walls that once denied us

have been crushed without resistance

a distant field of battle has bloomed

behind us

in this our springtime of cessation

all hostilities are over

after years of cagey warfare

i give up, I am naked

i raise my hands

cast these guns into the furnace

and so you are, in perfect symmetry

that time has passed

it’s all or nothing

from now on
