It was a savage walk
filled with brimstone and fire.

A vicious wind slapped my face.

Manifest anxieties echoed across
the dark expanse.

Billows of boiling black distilled
as a funeral shroud.

Bombarded from the sky; Hail
stones big as a fist.

Falling to my knees, trying to
blunt the blows.

The Gods, proving their superiority,
have loosed Odin again.
