Valhalla by David Kutz-Marks

Self Portrait by Sarah Zowalki
                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                         Valhalla 

                                                                         All the quiet girls
                                                                         staring like deer into cameras

                                                                         falls of dark brown hair

                                                                         and the background cut out,
                                                                         one would believe,

                                                                         such plain radiance fills it.

                                                                         Cameras clicking down
                                                                         not the only ones

                                                                         pulled sleeping from a carrier

                                                                         pressed and polished
                                                                         with their legs set square

                                                                         unable now to look away.
