PARIS


An attempt at fusing myth, history, observation, and poetic form.




PARIS
Yet again burns a funeral pyre
An end of corpus and mind and judgment
The end of decisions miracles and mistakes alike
Blood dries wounds hurt no more and won’t again
There, Nostradamus couldn’t have said it better himself
Daughter of Cebren flung herself too late into the fire to no avail
