Throne, or: An Arrival in a Room

from Interim in Terra by Nivi



here's you
the only person qualified to lead
and simultaneously
the last one i expected

i thought for sure that doctor morrin
or an underling of his
would take the throne
make it their own

here's me
tossed maliciously
a spanner coming home at last
triumphantly returning from the wild

but my attempt
is met with hate and contempt
i left a child
and i came back reviled


i saw it happen
i watched you falling from the sky
i watched you die
but here you are
your eye as ever
penetrating me
what does it see?


does it see through me to all of my allegiances
does it know that i made friends outside the wall
or does it see past all that
that i intended all along
to do them wrong

but you're telling me you see them in the basement
and you're showing me they're fighting even now
and i realise what is down there
i realise what i've done
and i am frozen
they have won


…i left a child
and i came back a child


from Interim in Terra, released December 21, 2014
