Lights flicker and glow,
Against red evening sky.
Bar stools tilt and scrape.
Cars labour over melted roads,
Engines mumble gruff warnings.
Exhausted heroes lay side by side,
Under trees and by water.
Wolves stalk lengthening shadows.
Our sky gently darkens.
Knowing eyes nod in agreement.
We are giving up.
