she was an angel
four faces
hidden by six wings
nothing like
anyone suspected
casting judgment
with a fiery blade

a glowing ring
beset by hundreds
of unblinking eyes
a vessel to carry
off the souls of
the recently departed
filled with coals
from whence the flames
of perdition reside

she was a virtue
a chariot
a principality
an archangel
guarding the gates
to heaven itself

she was an angel
the monstrous wrath
of the almighty
casting dispersions
as she lashed out
at the sinners
a hazy congruence
of demonic and divine
