Athena’s Embrace in which Divisions Desolve (Poem, Experimental)

Image result for cossack sword

I have to guard the sacred fire

To teach the world to dance

I’m here to tell you that there’s a difference

It’s not all the same

I’m here to show you how to call things by their proper name

There is a proper name

That there is

There is a proper name

I have to guard the sacred fire

To teach the world to dance

I’m here to tell you that there’s a difference

She said…

Bare feet traversed the marble tile. As checkered and cold as the gaze of the traveler. Upon her brow a laurel within her grasp a blade.

I stood regarding. Calm descended for I was master of my flesh. This specter though fearsome fair would not cow me nor stay my stride toward father sun.

“I have stripped hair from my skull, I have dug tendrils from my rib, I have sung to vultures, and feasted on want. Woman, wisdom, I owe you not a shred of obeisance. You speak of fire and you see I am already charred. Now step aside and drop your mother’s pretense for I am no child.”

She laughed a silent laugh but loudly so loudly from each eye.

“Your tongue bleeds war. Scarcely have you been weaned o babe of the abyss. Cling now homeward for Hades weeps for its child.”

“I shall pass to drink and dance with shimmering joys, to bespeckle the sky with guide, and wonder. You speak of names, you speak of truth, so what pray tell is yours?”

A thin smile spread over the desolate beauty of ice.

A bird of night winged down between us. Within its talons a parchment.

The slowest hint of nod.

I unfurled the feathered couriers gift.

“Though art the way?”

Having read I looked in question.

The answer was the hilt of sword.

I knew. I knew and I plunged the testament within my breast.

She held me and I held her.

And the boundary nullified…dissolved…division…

And so I sang

That there is

There is a proper name

There is There is There is
