Right Away

You and I, sweet [[love]],
have lost it all, sat quietly
by a desert fire to watch the spirits
of our seven worlds dance
this mighty [[night]] away,
no longer scared of the headless king
riding down his [[line]]
clattering spears and screaming death,
nor avoiding our mounting doom
and the fool's [[hope]] we wouldn't fail,
finally in that fiery [[heart]],
unconcerned by the offerings of angels
or the vacant void, just one
perpetual vessel
[[here]] to trumpet [[victory]]
as the [[Voice]] rings out over
my unmarked grave where I've grown
used to living [[death]]:

"Now [[be]] it".
