Classic Sculpture; Death of a Warrior
 
Lumbering down, heavy
without shock or shame as a sigh
falls, almost rehearsed the way
he clings to his shield, the way
the sword falls (sound of slow iron
striking a stone underwater), his knees
dig into the wet sand; all sense
somehow new like this heaviness,
this sun sparkling fresh and moist
in his eye, now open
and now still.
