Pillage by Lindsey Lewis Smithson


Ed Herrmann narrates
the history of the Templars,
the fall of the Holy Land,
the empty rooms
of my white walled home.

They became a standing army
with no leader, no bases,
no land to drop their armor.

Here my shoes are left
upside down in the bedroom
and I go to bed
after yet another fight.
