Queen of Nothing

Another poem inspired by the enticing anagrams that brilliant writer Max Meunier made of my name.

i sat in cherry
upon the hand carved
throne of  ivory bone
in the empty room
of chiseled stone
with its vaulted ceilings
that echo with the silence
black and white diamond tiles
patterning  the floor
no woven tapestries
of virgins fair or unicorns
to soften the harsh space
the cold is bitter chill
seeps into my bones
my breath a icy mist
frost licking at the
leaded windows
in this frozen dream
no servants to wait upon my word
no court in my thrall
a queen of nothing
of no one
not even myself
to command
I long to return to a
richer sanity
