A timeline of lives, in reverse

a lone fragment

i carry the pain of a thousand lifetimes everywhere i go. my ancestors are watching, waiting, impatient for the prophecy

so many failed, ruined attempts of fulfillment death of a lover betrayal of a son impatient, impossible, reaching for emptiness

i stand on the hilltop with a bastard of the roman standard and i die at dusk

i watch him as he fades to the fever and i succumb to the hero’s death: burning, mourning, alone

i die as he does, like the God who struck me down and i welcome Olympus

“why is it all so tragic?”
 i ask my knight, my brother’s son “c’est la mort” he answers, remembering the flames
