A poem by Hypatia Pickens

My exhibit, Second Libations, is the subject of some truly excellent machinimas by talented SL filmmakers. I have placed links to see them in the previous post below.

My exhibit SECOND LIBATIONS came to a fiery end on New Years. The transition from 2011 to 2012 brought the temple and colossus down in much added color and physical effects.
