Mortal Roil

March 21, 2013

Charles 1st

The bleak walk, midwinter,
in stately progress
past familiar tapestries

flanked by your grizzled priest
and pale courtiers,
brought you
+++++++++alone
before that
snow-dusted
scaffold

where the meaning of finale

rang with the swish
of steel through
royal
gristle
