Angels are always depicted in recent art as pretty white people with wings, but I seem to recall them introducing themselves in the Bible with, "Do not fear." Which does NOT imply a pleasant appearance.

Poem

This got me thinking about angels and fear, equating beauty and light with good, ugliness and dark with evil. "Grotesque Alterations" is a free-verse poem about Victor and Igor dealing with storm damage to the castle's statuary, their different tastes in aesthetics and how that reflects on their own self-image.
