Of Structure and Grace Formed by Jessica Ni Leacai

I would wish myself a wall,
a fortress of forgotten time,
of stone surfaces in buildings built.

No towers there trapping me,
nor my heart so horridly bound,
And I not melted in marbled moments.

No faked fallacy,
No whispered want.

With the earth my eternal chamber,
A burial beneath the brandished bodies,
and asphalt not asking of our antiquity.
