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
