off others’ fear
polluting the atmosphere
like a sideshow of mirrored shrieks
unleashing their own wintered Dorian freaks.
Until, a battle-worn body
with a mind
to the catalogues of chaos,
found his newly lost identity
amidst an ancient assassin’s ancestry.
by blue-blooded gold,
reborn of the hunted he preyed
for the revenge he carried against all those betrayed.
