She is no Law.
Who is Poetry......


She is muse.  Angel hair'd, raging gently;
Claw'd and tooth'd, bleeding.
She is misty, hidden lover; death and joy.
She is killer. She is the window.

She does not give herself to those who will not chant the key.

She is touch and taste and hearing; eye to the blind.
Sour and sweet.
She is fear and not afraid of fear.
She is longing; never dying.

She wields the weapon taken up by weak and strong alike.

She is harmonious contradiction;
Her toys are art and language.
She is quick and fickle; She will meet
And leave you like a wraith.
She is no Law, she is muse; Dark and angel hair'd and crazed.
