No written commentary last time;
and he said nothing; not at first.
I spoke, offhand, to comrades
and examined myself in the mirror,
nodding silently; but I slept well.
An arm in a patterned woollen sleeve
reaches downwards a slow bare hand
round the word weapon, slung inverted,
ready for us; company asset;
torso dressed as mobile device.
