for Glory’s sake

tiny devoted hairs

rise up in surprise

as arms curl open

to a glorious sunrise

warmth now drying

each thorny edge awake

soldiers proudly shield

just for Glory’s sake

their queen will rise up

drugging all who see

her sleeping beauty

trapped quite naturally

opening in essence

with paper thin grace

morning light glinting

in her uplifted face
