for even the bravest of warriors there comes a time to lay down their swords and rest
“to be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life.”
on the via rail trip home
i was in the lucky seat
prepared to wield the mighty hammer
to save us all
on an as-needed basis
just like thor.
if he was a happy, sleepy woman
with a scratchy throat
wrapped up in a cozy scarf
sipping bailey’s and coffee
on a meandering canadian train.
‘courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior.’
-carl von clausewitz
