Lot’s Second Wife by Jennifer Moore
Illustration by Sue Babcock
Waves crash on congregated rocks
laced veil, whipping paled cheeks into submission.

Jealous winds flung away their vows,
drowning them out with their howling,
their hymns of desolation,

as the temple shook its salted walls,  
white pillars trembling.  

Ashen lips met hers— 
no looking back.
