Reconciliation

In Athens, Lysistrata,
A Spartan laugh.
You say it changed
Your perception.
That is what
Classics do.
Outside a war
Rages through.
Kalburgis die,
Murugans too.
The space I inhabit
Shrinks and shrinks.
The bars of hurt feelings
Imprison.
At the bus stop
We met Reconciliation.
Stop. Woman must you
Lay, shuck or deliver
And let us die,
While a bus ferries
Reconciliation
Out of view? Stop.
The war still rages
Through and through.
