Treasure Island

Geoffrey Verdegast


The Savour of J'nea


Brain of bone,
Heart of stone,
Demeanour of thistle,
ice, and gristle.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

From Chapter 18 of my novel, 'Of Staves and Sigmas, ' Wagner and Balgor are waiting in the palaestra food line, trading insults with their snarky friend, J'nea, who typically holds her own with them - much to their dismay. It is never revealed if the poem - uttered by Wagner to describe J'nea's mien - is an impromptu utterance or whether the men made it up beforehand, although some of their dialogue would suggest the latter.
