Feb. 17 & 22/13

Viking wears his heart on his gun rack.

It beats and it begs and begs as it beats

for a reason to release

the safety that renders it dormant.

Viking collects victims in his wine cellar.

Labelled by their fears, bottles and casks hold their tears

he even knows which years

have yielded the best vintage.

Viking sits on a throne of thorns.

Through a suit made of steel, he ensures he can’t feel

enough to let himself heal;

though no one can get close enough to tell.

Viking hides his hatred in his helmet.

There it poisons his brain into seeing loss as gain,

slowly driving him insane,

with perceived protection from pain

For all he does to be present and seen

Unfortunately he does neither.
