dísir, fylgja
hugr, hamr
demobbed, settled
humans, cattle
housed together.
meanwhile South,
Eternal City sacked by Goths.
age of wind, age of wolves
Seeress’s Prophecy
blacken sunbeams, dust
veil, abandoned burials
Valkyrie-sent: Go, child. Find the rest.

urðr (fate)
verðandi (happening)
skuld (future)

spit

yawning void, skyway halls

he smells grass growing,
watching from the wall
