XIX

Trivial choices
Keep evermore at our heels,
There are no exits;

XX

The bat of an eye,
Life’s course is forever changed,
Turn and face your beast;

XXI

In such disrepair
Life devours us wholly,
Warriors wither;

XXII

Learn by example,
A man who taught without words,
I observed his trials;

XXIII

In and out of time,
I should know him moreover,
In his hospice gown;

XXIV

A man sorely missed,
We will one day pick them all:
These bones; long and short
