She dwells in the pitch-dark attic 
full of cobwebs and 
dried autumn leaves,
in the half-open oval window, a 
minute aperture quenching 
her thoughts of passing,
her back badly swollen, slowly 
leaning against the wall 
feeling the throbbing pain 
in nailing a fictitious comfort, 
pinching her tiny fingers right 
through the withering mural of Saint 
Michael slaying a twin serpent, she 
grasps her left-hand, while 
chanting an inaudible 
eloquence of tantrums, then 
pulls out a golden ring 
from her bruised finger, and gently 
inserts among the gaps, among the 
forsaken she stares, as the 
pretentious etched door adjacent her 
screeches, as if time freezes and 
palpitation creeps through her veins, 
when a temper in full absence of 
calmness inches towards her, and from 
the ashes of her self-inflicted 
incarceration, she rushes out to 
rendezvous with the advent of play, a 
misleading image, a fallacy of her 
vision or a miracle in progress, 
hands to her an elusive indictment, 
sparing her a moment to exhale again.
