The Scarlet Letter
Volume I, Number 2 | October 1993
an alchemy of Horus
by Fr. Pi

Step forth with fist held high
to bring perfection to this imperfect
the fires of heaven turn
earth to glass and
the glass of the
windows for sight
without touch,
the steel of the walls
for life without will.

The bird from heaven's
has eyes of glass
and talons of steel.

So cry from the
windows atop the
the earth left behind,
and pray the bird
can build a fiery nest.
