The caption read,
â€œHe and she standing quietly next to a dog.â€
The prompt queen sat with her crown on,
The insets between each Gothic arch providing a measure
Of what can be
Done with architecture.
She said, â€œWe built it long ago.
And then we knocked it down.â€
And then she looked away.
â€œAnd then we looked away.â€
