Sacrifice

who demands
the severed head of intelect
upon the platter and
witnessed by the angel

standing by the open doorway
keeping crimson vigil
offering the opportunity of
a lifetime

inviting reasons
logic sapping gallop
through the questioning forest
into the asemic hinterland

later
in the court of winter waiting
heroic deeds are told
pacts and bargains made

footsteps follow blood line
in snowy landscape
stone stands stock still
bearing lichen witness
