in the shadows of waning light

two senescent lovers lie

vexed in a voiceless vortex
they await the morrow.

Shackled to their contract
they crawl onto the sacrificial altar
and await the blow
of Hera's matrimonial blade.

A Game of Chess
Two armies / On a checkered field are placed / Brother against brother / Ancient hatred retraced Ishmael and Issac / Born of synonymous seed / The younger hewed ivory / The older ebony cleaved Abraham's sons / Great nations promised both<br…
