and thanks for ruining my life

Marcus Agrippa’s Pantheon

Nothing can prepare you for it.
I’d seen the pictures, the dome and the point,
the perfection of the deep-graven letters.

But, lost on a November day, turning
through streets that look the same,
passing ancient  ruins at every turn,

I followed the map towards it. Giving up,
on an open square, tourist-full, I turned.
And saw. Did I gasp? Did I fall? My heart did.

I nearly died, seeing the ancient boast,
M·AGRIPPA·L·F·COS·TERTIVM·FECIT:
Marcus Agrippa, the consul, made me.

His monument is there. The letters are deep,
perfectly cut; the solid dome defies the centuries.
I did not think, then, “you must change your life.”

I gave thanks to everything that had brought me there:
to the gray sky of a November day, to the tax return
that let me cross the Atlantic, to being lost,

to my inability to follow simple directions, to solitude:
to everything that let me stand there, bowled over
by the feather-light touch of two thousand years.

A very rushed drawing for soriku day because to day was busy, but I desperately wanted to put something out today. I won’t let something as frivolous as an occupation get in the way of soriku day. nope.

Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle…and wonder if we’ll ever get the chance to kill him.

I decided to doodle my self insert MC for The Arcana while I wait for the new chapter to come out, blehh

He’s five-foot, two-inches of constantly exhausted, impulsive and fiery bravado to hide the fact that he’s actually just a huge emotional sap.
