Hecate Above Me
Age Group: Adult
One night in December 2004, you revealed
yourself my goddess, beneath roiling clouds
in a silent sable sky I watched move
like a pond’s wavelets past blurred stars.
One evening in May 2005, after parting ways
with the moonlit porch of yesteryear
on which you discovered my chilly night-clothed
figure, you again showed yourself;
I had finished a Beltane ritual, asked for a sign;
my candle holder unmarred, broke, a slab
of sparkling glass off the left side to rest
on stained red silk beneath, obvious sign
you took the time to touch my life.
Again you came to me one day in September 2006,
consoled me as I leaned far back over
a low brown leather chair in a small cubicle
of space—blue-eyed man between my legs,
navel now pierced, hot pain stabs my middle, pain
grips my sides, stronger than
the tattooist’s needle. I found providence
in seeing a stuffed Halloween crow fastened near the
ceiling, plastic eye meeting my amused brown orbs.
Author's Notes: Poem about certain instances I've encountered Hecate's hand in my life. I usually recognize Her presence when a crow is nearby, whatever the form.
