Told I’d see Mars if I looked.

Remembered to look as I turned

south down 30th for the house.

 

And there in the east, not far

west of the just-past-full moon,

brighter, steadier than a star,

 

wearing his blood-in-the-river 

tinge, I was sure, there he was— 

that warrior, salute him or not.
