The Hound

The Hound

Much later they would say
the vision that came was night
in all her splendor,
dragging down the heavens
in a star filled cloak,
with one – the order star – slipping away,
in time to raise the sky
from gargoyle’s pointed snout.


* The gargoyle protects the cathedral in Madrid from evil spirits.
