gasped gaze to stuttered winks
ruptured navy sky,
bombarded stars with accursed dimming dust,
acquainted light with shadowed
merged eclipse to one darkness.
Heaven, offended, blinked sad eyes,
Molten blue to navy curs’d
shades of melancholy,
unquenched thirst in barren scape,
soul’s monumental folly.
Bitter sharp the poison bites
‘neath escarpment’s hidden ruins,
assailed around, entwisted fate,
chthonic anthem choose,
hybrid self above the earth
or true to one beneath,
bore terrain, bail debris found,
blowout, chained release.
