Lupe

Internet image of a scrying mirror with a reflected candle.

Internet image of a scrying mirror with a reflected candle.

Lupe scries the mirror black, her grim purpose to divine

The one who’ll end her bloody spree and take her place, in time

Her trance begun, the vision starts, she sees her rival clear

The revelation pierces through her heart just like a spear

Her sister has a single child, a daughter they call Grace

A troubled girl, but pure of heart, with an angelic face

Childless Lupe hoped to take her niece under her crape wing

And take on her apprenticeship to teach the way of things

But now it seems this clever girl whom she has warmed to know

Shall mete her retribution like a Fury from below

Does she know, this hapless child who loves her tía so well

She’ll be the one to bring her down, then damn herself to Hell

Are the bodeful images manifesting on the glass

Shadows of unfounded fears, or portents of doom to pass?

For now Lupe shall watch and wait, to see what will transpire

And judge how much time she’s left ere leaping through the fire
