missed exchanges

missed exchanges
we are confused at
our responsibilities
going down the line
sideswiping urgent
requests expecting
them to be taken
into town on the
backs of stallions
flying flags of certain
victory is ours when
even all may seem
lost in a countryside
supporting tens upon
thousands of our
enemies where
the only success
is failure to follow
orders given by
generals a world
away from here and
now we will all
dismount and roll
the banners up
the streets and
down the alleys
searching for the
perfect hiding spot
the soldier’s place
to blend in and
start the process
of becoming their
own enemy
