Unborn dreams

The lady sits
circle centred and sublime
while past, present and future
revolve around her ordered perimeter.

Saint Geneviève
with your so obedient flock
and your black devil to hand
what do you offer us
on our weary way?

Do we need to notice you?
Do we even care to look?

And the angel to your left
fast hurrying on.
Flurried messenger on a
secret silent road
to god knows where.

Saint Geneviève
with your flickering light and undisputed piety
what exactly is your message here?
Would you have us stay or have us go?

Will you deny our unborn dreams?
Will you release us from our destinies?
