The War Domain

Another from 1980. I seem to remember feeling uneasy about the nuclear situation in the world and the possibility of being drafted for some senseless war. Anyway this was written after a walk through the war memorial museum in Auckland.

Wondering through the relic warehouse
I heard a heartbeat.
Yesterdays streets and stones,
over human bones, traversed.
Look not now what can't be seen;
Have you signed a name on the glory wall?
