Anthology - Mother's Reiver

Anthology cover

In March we asked for entries to a charity anthology where the theme was STOLEN. Kneel Downe's Stolen Indie Anthology will be published on 20th May but we wanted to share some of the entries here on the website too. Here's Mother's Reiver by The Wolf's Paw...

Miasmic pools of gelatinous ooze,
Glinting brightly in the dawn;
Seeping slowly home to Mother.

The Magpie sits, whittles wood,
Waiting, hoping, yearning for
Movement or a crack of a twig,
So the cycle can continue.

Collecting the warm, watching as it cools;
Melting beneath Mother’s Hand
Feeding her black, foetid heart;
Gorging on the sunshine once created.

The Magpie stops, listens, watches.

A chance approaches close at hand;
Coaxing words distract, confuse;
A breath purloined returns to the sky.

Mother feasts, another pool begins.
