The Fortress

castleIt hunches forward, jutting into the skyline
its skeletal legs
flexing;
spine digging into the rock face.

Memories of soldiers, powdered
dust particles
swept in the winds;
to settle outside city walls.

Eyes yawning, sleep encrusted
like those of beady, black spiders
that harbour
-secrets of its own.
