Alexandra Feodorovna

we say: cast out 
the man with 
 lantern eyes &
brows spelling thunder
who slows
the deathly flooding 
in your child

blood of blood, 
sweet woman
count not the
broken phials and 
strewn violence!

banish him
Ausländische Prinzessin!
A mother's love 
is but hysteria.

Written for the Sanaa’s dVerse Quadrille prompt “Casting a Poetic Spell”
