After Jericho

It might not be an immediate fall
but I can wait for what’s clearly inevitable
for as long as it takes.

No matter if I die waiting
as long as I can be buried
with my horn in my hands.

I want my grave to be close by
in case someone tries to rebuild,
in case we are needed again. 

Last thought: for those who remain,
give some thought to those whose loved ones
were buried under the ruins, 

who had gathered there
simply because they heard music
and thought the angels had come for them.
