  Warriors

fierce from birth
we cried and rooted for the bulls-eye nipple
don’t let go or else
 
Red Rover Red Rover
send someone right over
 
break through small hands
 squeezed by  wiry fingers
tight around flower petal  phalanges
  
break and capture are the rules
hearts grow fierce to win  
and when all are captured
when all hold the other’s hand in one line
 on one side
 the war is over
 
but it never was
 
never is
