It was said that because he had been blessed
With an impersonal peaceful nature, he had nothing
To do with launching personal attacks demeaning
Any fellow poetic character; that he preferred
To remain on neutral ground, a strange sort
Of angelic no man’s land where the twilight was
So ambiguous you could not make out where
The next deadly round was coming from.
