Persephone Vandegrift: Maiden Castle

Maiden Castle

They said it could not be conquered
guarded by silent eyes and fierce hearts.

~ How tight is your grip son
thrust here – strike low
find the tendon release it from the bone ~

Who comes to such a place
there was no prize here.
Why did you come
across Poseidon’s plateau?

This castle was not the heart of the people!

The fort may have been their body
in complex configuration
but each blade of grass was their soul
in rapacious repetition.

~ For it will come to pass
mark my words true
Belatucadros has spoken
All hail the god’s vengeance!
We may slip into his arms this day
but our souls will never be taken
We look out to our enemy and know
that for every one of their victories
we take two for our own! ~

Persephone Vandegrift
