Protecting Sacred Tablets

Written by: Gwendolen Rix

one paper mache moment

eviscerates her temple

legions upon legions soar

                   ...protecting sacred tablets of mind’s eye

brevity of damning woes

spiritual limbs lifted high
her worn helmet polished gold

                   ...sparrows carry maiden’s heart to Lord’s throne
