Nicely entertaining in a surreal, Milliganesque kind of way.
The "Verdun/You're done" line, of course, is my favourite.
..they might have been around at that location later.
As N seems (to me) to be er.. eccentric, I would suggest the last line should be "you or even me".

you are comfy with a very loose set of personal associations between the location, the tank and the stone circle... but it is true that this poem does not really bring the two together in any way that is apparent to me.
By "two" do you mean the tank and location? Are you asking why that location rather than, say, anywhere else? Good question.
wonder whether the question would even come up if I were to find this amidst the rest, or whether I would just be in the world of your poems where it would make its own sense rather than the sort of sense we make by connecting the google and wiki dots. Something like that, is what I was asking (you and me both).
