Heart Guarded Gate

mercy please gift
us deep rest,

crooked painting’s pupils are
roaming as we’re
pacing

arms crossed by tower
window in full-
mast pose

but it’s half-past
a little late

and moon’s silver
is ebbing
low

man the castle gate with
guard baring
my lady’s
face

her virtue, this
cage’s only
glow.
