  1. This is a fitting finale for that particular portion of Levato’s poem. I suspect you’ve read the works of Edgar Allan Poe before writing this response, and I think it works in your favor. What this line says is that, although the war has concluded, it has not done so without casualties on both sides of the battlefield. Winners and losers don’t exist when conflicts are taken to their most logical extremes, especially when those involved in said conflicts are too stubborn to see that everyone’s life is at stake, including theirs, when so much as a single round of ammunition is fired. In the words of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, “War, children…it’s just a shot away.”
