Tabris in Cantos: Ramiel

Tabris in Cantos


Next the paw steps
with sink and tap
into the wet marsh
of Ramiel’s failed vigil.

He hangs in pendulum
sways above gray
clouds as wings twist
and tear in anguish.

“The dead lie still,
even when I call
and scream demands
to cast off the weight

of grave’s hand.
The fools shield
their eyes from God’s
grace and my words.”

Tabris ignores proud
fools, and sets
upon the skittering
rats, haunting Ramiel’s
defiant graves.
