Don’t stifle their excitement; ham-on rye,

sham-on high; spell the words out,

lance them with a needle,

shatter the shadows,

you’re alone,

peal back,

you can,

I am.

Belittle men, pamper your women, tamp fires.



never done,

pushing the trees,

angering the elder gods,

harboring the cape and circling,

avid warrior, shaped betrayer, ax in hand,

blood tastes of iron, polish your blade; glory.
