The Royal Questions

Who are you
Why are you

These are questions that are

They look like
Eight wings, with lion heads
Mermaid tails with stars inside

They walk upon
Four hands, that tremble the earth
They have oval mouths that spout the sky

These questions
They breathe
They have heartbeats

They are sentient things that are moving
Across all my self
That be a continent
Of dreams

Who are you
Why are you

I bow before them each
I kiss their every fingers
I lay my lips upon their eyes

Shake they do
All the walls
When they send me

Who are you
Why are you

These questions two

They King and Queen.
