“goat bells tinkled all night” Love this image, so peaceful, ancient, but unnatural too since goats don’t naturally wear bells. Also, why are they up all night? Who is tending that flock?

“they beat drums for three days till all the drumheads were busted” Celebration? Violent image, drums of war, not drums of peace.
