Like Herodotus narratives, the Slow Salute evokes images of foreign battlefields and the one heartache that howls through the ages. The entirety is a manual of ritual behavior, the remains of a fallen warrior returned to loved ones: the container, the hand off, the boot strap, the gun salute. The intense description transcends time, its straightforward verse becomes a hum, a song, a plea, and the weight of someone lost is felt and difficult.
