The 11th House

March 1, 2016

This penultimate traveller
Arrives fashionably late, her
Arms carefully wrapped amid
The belly of a tall water urn.

With one eye green and the
Other bright blue, and wavy
Hair striped in many hues, she
Stands apart from the rest.

Her wit cuts like a winter wind,
Cold and precise and unfailingly
Honest. In fact, some have said
That she has never told a lie.

Her clarity brings few friends, but
Those who stay are true indeed.
