In Refrain - Poem by April Michelle Wolverton

Curses, the Assailant does bereave,
slandering the resonance of sound
that will only disordinate the glass.

Brilliant spine,
fraught with unrest-
and this,
'quick is, quick is, quick is, quick, '

And yet,
that treacherous Spindle's sermon persists,
undulating in deafness,
crannied by the whoosh-whish
of the Wheel.

this cheek remains
needless in its take, and limp
in its opposition.

Alas, this Spirit humbles,
and ceases to parry,
now, 'circle, circle, circle...'


Sleep soundly.
