Canto 9. Dream (Jan. 2017)
(fourth incarnation)

Long before characters like Gandolph and Frodo
were saved by eagles, Dante wrote about his own dream
where an eagle carried him high into a fiery sky.
Jarred awake, Dante woke two hours after dawn at
the gate to purgatory proper where an angel branded
seven P's onto his forehead, all to eventually be cleansed.
