Poetry 175: Palace of the Spiders

Hypnotic and mesmerizing
A fountain of frogs
And an arched gateway
Envelop like an elixir

The narrow streets
Dazzle, beckon
“Come hither,
I have plenty to offer”

Its murals depict
An ancient city
Of old souls
And eternal love

Its brick and bones
Showcase beauty
And purity
Like a dove

If only
I can escape
For one day
And fly over

If only
I can go now
At this very moment
And stay there forever…

-AAS
