Would Chamber

Would that she would bear it, under the blarney breach, 
And in the surf- pain swear it was greater than
Not lesser than the seed.
Could she hold it in; could she tear it from its bunker;
Where the nestled heartbeat,
Half -formed, halftorn palpitating with discordant measure,
Would this nearness to her own; constant inside 
The queenly throne, keep it safe from the terror, 
Coffin lacquered and blackened bones.
Shadows now enthrall & leave us wondering in vacant halls,
Where choice is a distant call, we make in whispers,
Wishing for answers from that silent chamber.

  1. Passionate, precise and superbly sculpted. This is powerfully evocative writing that rings so true – all we come to expect from Aria Ligi. At her best, a truly majestic poet.
