#OctPoWriMo – Day 23 – “Annunciation”

annunciation

 

Annunciation // by Jennifer Patino

 

They appeared to me
as blurred saints,
carnation-cheeked,
glowing in ambient halos

in my near-wakefulness,
I heard their voices
in all angelic ranges,
some fallen, some still pure

There can only be
one queen, one mother–
though imitations hound me,
hate me, and attempt to

guide me–I will not
volunteer, I carry
the mark of the barren;
There is no milk to be found here
