Thou may thinkest that thou seest only one soul,
when thou dost spy behind thine eyes.
Yet a second doth wait to take control,
dreaming of a day upon which its nature relies.
Fensham's Wake is a story told in the form of epic poetry, with twenty-nine stanzas charting the journey of a man who sets out to rebel against the King, only to have his plot go terribly wrong before experiencing a spiritual awakening that makes him see the world anew. Like most of my work, it is full of theological allusion, but the core of Fensham's wake is inspired by creation myths and biblical and even ancient Egyptian imagery. In order to help identify these allusions, a concordance is underway.
