Threadbare DollPlaying with threadbare doll,Hestia waitsalong a dusty path of rubble and dim lights.The child hums, sweetly,her own rhythmic fantasy adhered;absent from the night of gunfire and blood.High above on waning cloudsthe Goddess is weeping;she reaches for the girl--the hearth of home is extinguished.And the threadbare dollhas pleasure as she dancesbetween little grey pebblesand the hands of the child.
