we put it at the back of our mind
we had our fault-lines

I had my red-lines
that I swore you would never cross
but no sooner had I drawn them

the first shots

a steady rapprochement is not on the cards
a reset of relations
I dare not speak
another word

but a slow steady encroachment has me at a loss
