So Shall It Be Written

Witches by Hans Baldung, 1508

Where is it written in the fantasy:

witches are hideous?

 

Perhaps it was a girl immersed in light

but not people, storming the beaches

of the library, hunting power in faith.

 

Just because she speaks a foreign language

 

they look on the mother, world-weary,

father gunned down on the Yellow Brick Road

and remind her that she’s not good enough for dreams.

 

That witches are always the villains,

that reality will clutter wet pages.
