One from the ICON series: Le Roi

The sun king,

An avatar of his soul’s

True bidding.


Voices in his head,

The call of his country’s people,

Shackled by his pile of

Golden sweeps.


The hungry on their return

To hell,

His rise a mere steal.


A wife held captive,

Gardens in restless


Art only kept in mirrors.


His descension,

The final act of a ballerino,

Waddling to his imperfect

Throne draped in ill-fated
