The Discouragement of the Crystal Keep



Is it a crystal keep or a smothering, suffocating bell jar? Are the birds flying by the crystal keep or slamming into the glassy exterior because they think they can pass through it? The bridge cannot be crossed and the Lady rebuffs the men. She capitulates and feeds them but they are boorish and she sends them back to their boat.

There is no way to enter, no way to find the magic succour.

Yup, after five years of deteriorating health there seems to be no way for me to cross the bridge or find nourishment. Pretty discouraging. That’s how I feel every day recently. No way out, no way in.
