Two Saints


George a Greek import


but Alban native

to England.


This the Church

of Gladstone, Disraeli.


George enclosed in iron,

his beaked feet

sharper than the dragon's.


Alban - nonchalant

in sandals -

shoulders a river of blood.


George to kill;

Alban to die,

Heaven's gates above them.
