At such a time as this (new poem)

At such a time as this
by Tim Kavi

wherein sweet music
once made
fools dance in the street
under the light of moon
and approaching warships

made bare the teeth
as aggression
fed massive
throngs of loyalists

songs of blatant
parties of destructive
chasing demon guards
looking for exorcists

at such times as this

when even
the dancing stopped
your dancing
was divine

a goddess there

ethereal dreamy sheen
when I pulled back your veil

the face of my
goddess wife
was seen

and I knew
in times of war
and fighting
that love was
always at home
in her arms
and eyes
and heart
looking back at me.
