Metamorphosis


I

was a rock fortress

In a charmed circle

Drawn by the ties of blood

By all my childhood

faiths

By solemn oaths before

a sacred fire

By the law of family

Gods

By the menacing

brotherhood of kin

Yet the citadel crumbled

Dissolved

Like a cargo of powered salt

In the sea.

Evaporated …

Like it had never been

And all the vast armies of logic

Were put to flight

By the single argument

Of your smile.
