poetry heads....can you give me an explanation of this poem please?

If we must speak of each other, let it be

in the forms that monarchs and generals use

to refer to their rivals; as if each were known

to the other only through field reports

and classified intelligences. Let it be

in tones of wariness, grudging respect, and,

where permitted, mutual admiration.

Let our campaign be conducted on these terms.

 

And if people speak of the “break-up”,

let us hear in that the cold overtones

of the word as applied to a glacier: how,

when the ice began to shudder and crack,

new light found an entry, and the gleaming designs,

evolving each moment, each moment formed

a kaleidoscope view – a les through which

an eerie and unforeseen world finally offered

itself to be seen – as the fragments, mindless

and pure, frigid yet free, plunged

to the sea, that vast, that resolute,

that insensate, that insatiable sea.

 

                                                                                Troy Jollimore, After from Tom Thomson in Purgatory, 2006

just because we broke up doesnt mean we cant amicable when we see each other, so that when others hear of it they will be able to appreciate that we both handled it gracefully.

Rivals are not amicable but the poem is suggesting to speak of each other if you must speak about the other without emotions but with facts.  If someone ask about the break up no matter how bad the breakup was each of you will have different view of why you are not together and sometimes you should not speak about those details.  After awhile with enough time you won't even remember why you are not together. 

 
When you finally get the correct answer it may be about a Cat and a Dog...shrug.

Is this completely out of context from Purgatory?  I have not read it and hopefully someone on BHM has and can give you a better answer in CONTEXT...lol.
