masses: frigg

painting by marlene vine (, poem by roy herndon smith

frigg (9210)

enamored odin
makes a castle with a wall
and a moat of fire

to possess her, but
frigg is crimson flames, black rocks
and swirling soft airs

raging odin makes
a fortress of words, but frigg
is the unspoken

dispossessed odin
wanders lost over the earth
and, in the end, sleeps

frigg holds him in dreams
and stillness beyond knowing
he wakes in wonder
