This Is a Prayer to the Erinyes; This Is a Prayer for the Resistance.

Democratic National Convention: Day Two

This is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly.)  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer for serious vengeance, for the righting of wrongs, for restorative justice; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer for anti-fascists, anti-Nazis, those who oppose the KKK.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer for torn down statues, long convictions, just consequences; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer for self-defense, electronic outing, mirror spells.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer for bitter uncles, for the mothers of the Movement, for Heather Heyer’s mother; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer for poppets stabbed by pins, spells that involve poison, curses writ in blood.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer for unquiet ghosts, for soldiers without graves, for spells made with ironweed and menstrual blood; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer for the hand of glory, for eggs wrapped in black yarn, for work done on at the Crossroads on any Dark Moon.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to Alekto, whose anger never ends, Megaera, full of jealous rage, and Tisiphone, who brings vengeful destruction; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer for those who stand at the gates of Dis, those who will not forget, those who lost children and drew a sigil in blood.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer from the tower made of children’s last cries, from hanging trees, from the edges of graves; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer from the borders of madness, from the way blood tastes like iron when you bite off your tongue, from the last, jerking gasp of a hanged man.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

This is a prayer to those who demand justice, to those who cry at the gates, to those who rend their garments, to those who will not go away; this is a prayer to the Erinyes (I do not invoke them lightly).  This is a prayer steeped in jimson weed, screamed to the mountains, picked out by rose thorns upon a virgin’s thighs.

This is a prayer to the ancient, chthonic ones.  This is a prayer for the Resistance.

  1. Powerful Medicine….. A’ho

  2. Full of Passion, full of concentrated and directed Fury, full of Justice, full of Love. I’ll be rereading this and not just today…

  3. They who spill the blood of kin, be it acknowledged or hidden, be it seen or secret, we meet at the portal of the city, at the portal of the garden, at the portal of the gate, with brazen claws and scorpion flails, and with their kinslaying blood anoint the posts that the cries of the land shall cease.

  4. Merci to everyone! I hope this is useful to you.
