Wadj-Wer

 
Incant your image: written on its wall
Your history retains a death’s enigma,
Egyptian prince, priestess, animal:
Eyes like glyphs, Nile’s shadow worshipper.

 

Just a simple little poem for, and partially inspired by, Blair. Wadj-Wer, like Hapy, was one of the Egyptian fertility deities, male yet demonstrating feminine features: for some reason this reminded me fondly of my drag artist pagan husband. Loving, androgynous, generous, life-giving, and unpredictable. And realllllly old. (Love you darling. Please don’t smite the year’s crop.)
