2. I Will Not Walk Away

From Songs of Consonants (2001)

Anschluß — grip of hell
i will not walk away
harsh as winter is
i learned to cope with cold before
in the ear take a bullet
my daughter will never taste
no greater love*

*John 15:13: Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. [Berean Standard Bible]

For my maternal grandfather, who died a P.O.W. in World War II
