Resistance

This poem was modeled after Robert Graves Counting the Beats and was written in 

In Memory of Noor Inayat Khan and all those who still resist

One pale break, love
(they touch fingers) one pale break
“Will we meet tomorrow?” one pale break
Is this one last break
Counting the stops
Counting the dark train stops
The flagellation of time, in dark train stops
Parting always tempts fate
Wait for the door
Blank-faced, wait for the door
Soldiers smoke and laugh, wait, wait for the door
 Why that double-take?
Where will you be
(she whispers) where will you be
If I’m still free tomorrow, where will you be
No gloves, her hands ache
I will be waiting
Rue de Sang, I’ll be waiting
In the alley, behind the café, I’ll be waiting
Smile, love, for my sake
Counting the stops
Counting the dark train stops
The flagellation of time, in dark train stops
Parting always tempts Fate
