True Cut 6

Listen:

      the theatre suite’s in trauma:
      withdrawn, and silent.

As Jean sifts through the wreckage,
the remains that were strewed
in the life and death struggle
that ineluctably ensued,

      she relives the drama
      she failed to prevent.

And, digesting the things they were party to,
Vee and Ericsson sourly brood,
a bitter cud of curdling adrenaline,
 sombre, subdued,

      and slumped in lifeless diorama,
      both utterly spent.
