“The Godess of Night” by Cara Vitadamo


The Goddess of night
weaves around mindless, black light.

 

She waits for brass heroes
that talk in riddles
to make her Queen
of a castle with no moats.

 

Anticipating her change,
she found she makes her home
beneath rocks
as ruler of cadavers
and worms.
