Raven Made Her Choice
upon his resting place, Raven made her call
planned to join her lover, using powder and a ball
at the markers where the predeceased were laid
watched her namesake circle, and heard his woeful voice,
mused the circumstances that took her partner’s life.
sacrifice unite them?
Is there an afterlife?
listening to the chilling call,
Raven made her choice.
