    Summary

    The man wears a long dark cloak made of the feathers of a raven, or perhaps they are wings folded about his body. Locks of hair like fire roll across his shoulders. He approaches carrying a basket in the crook of his arm, the basket is filled to the brim with apples.

     The steps to the temple are not yet worn with age.

     The temple is circular, with seven pillars holding up a domed roof.

     There is a man in the center of the temple.

     He is on his knees, head bowed and weeping.

    The wings folded over his face are covered with blue eyes, dripping with tears. The pairs of wings upon his back radiate out and flex against the silver chains that hold them to the pillars.

     His feathers are strewn about him, and the man with the dark cloak does not know if they have clipped his wings or if the angel had torn them out in his own distress.

     The chained man’s robes flutter in the breeze.

     
    Inspired by art made by Talhí Briones for her novel Hieroglyphs: The Celestial Conspiracies by Talhí Briones
