Do the royal lineages
require more glimmer and detail
to become inspired?
They bring as luggage
a portable alter
laden with fierce images and deep oceans
of molded metal and polished gems
piercing holes
that they hope will leak out
the heavens.
The skulls and fore arms
of saints 
and the splinters 
of deadly scaffolding
lie in windows
ordained with visions
that instill their worth.

-Robert L. Jackson III
