MarPoWriMo 11

What will there be 
to give up

in the face of all
resistance

now just a map
with arrows

and scared colors
where borders

used to be certain
a figure

walking in the woods
snow swept

future tense another
word for all

the nuclear scenarios
we thought

it was safe to unlearn
now waiting

for an endgame while
people are left

for dead in the streets
safe unsound
