NaPoWriMo, Day 27

The prompt for today’s poem was the King of Swords from The Ellis DecK (sic). (Click here to see the card.)

Judgement call

I may not have all the answers, but I do
have some of the questions. Darkness and light
are entwined so that only the sharpest
mind can discern between them.

The sword on my lap is Damascus steel, supple
and irresistible as water. See those wavelets
of charcoal and silver in the blade? It can bend
without yielding and hold an edge fine

enough to split truth from truth.
