the Castle looms on the horizon 
with the rising sun behind. 
an imperial sight – 
the rook’s stately comportment 
cast in plaster 
as Apollo carts the shadows. 

the Elephant lumbers onward 
with exhaustion in her limbs.
a week’s persistent journey – 
I follow clandestinely behind
with great expectations
of the city that awaits.
