ATTACK OF THE BLACK BOOK: DAY 70


innocence is frozen here
proverbial forever she never grows old
her sister wisdom circles her like a hawk or a raven screaming
“one day you will awake from this delusion”
but she remains there, and I have seen her, never aging
waiting and wondering at all the fools that seek her fountain of youth
and watching her sisters kids, the elders as they play chess in her garden
she never grows old, and the elders laugh with teeth like gold and tell her
“you must never wake up from this delusion”
but one day I saw her smile, and it cracked like red lightening across the sky
and she laughed like a fish in the belly of still water, and said
“you are all still sleeping, this is my dream.”
