Once and only once,
Exactly this thing
Happened. The day broke,

Half-moon to one side
In the cloudless skies.
The birds didn’t sing

Until later than
They had been, and then
More quietly, since

A heatwave had come
Over the mountains.
A hero arose.

That last line’s not true.
What is it with you
And hero stories?
