And so it stays just on the edge of vision,
A small, unfocused blur, a standing chill
That slows each impulse down to indecision.

In furnace-fear when we are caught without
People or drink. Courage is no good:
It means not scaring others. Being brave
Lets no one off the grave.
Death is no different whined at than withstood.
