fights in secret

from Flickin' the 'V's by Tiger & Panda & Ox



an asthmatic breeze
brought light relief
the air was stuffed
and sewn with heat

you were young
when you moved here
to near where
surnames come to rest

you thought about
the fights in secret
that got you here

a caravan stands
on dry farm land
poppies pull the wind
towards its door
outside a town
with at least one house
with at least one english flag
that doesn't understand

all the fights in secret
that got us here

they met in the water
names in the water

they met in the water
names in the water
to soften the land
