When Travelling To Celestria, I Glimpsed Venom Clad In Dusk
Averting dying gazes, a tarnished
Soul, I saw. Speaking names into a wisp
Of scented hemlock. He tossed it swift
Toward the earth from which I climbed, and I
Asked of him, “What was that piece which you then
Released? ” and he watched me with quiet eyes.
“A midnight bidding my grace unto the
World, ” his only words as I let him fade.
