Fey Court --CoWriteAstrid stood on the sidelines in the ball room. She was starting to wonder why she had come in the first place. It wasnt like there was anyone for her there. She began to distract herself, looking around the grand room. There were silk streams of cloth that hung from the ceiling, in a way that made it seem as though they were afloat in an ocean of pearls. In the middle of the room there were people her age or younger, the youngest of them around seventeen. Most were dancing with someone, to a new melody that made the room nearly silent in awe.
So again, she wondered why in the hell she had decided to come. This place wasnt her style: she would rather have a fun sparring match than dance with someone. Or so she told herself. Why she had wasted her money on a gown, or gone through all this trouble to be ditched by her friends, for their boyfriends, she had no clue. Astrid was overwhelmed, the room dizzying with heat. So she left, seeking some much needed fresh air.
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
