Horror

the scream of the patterned azure

as its skin is defiled by the excess


of man’s most impressive monster.

and the olive jade skeletons that mourn


their littered brothers and sisters.

siblings that become one with the mother.


their bodies torn from their feet

to satisfy man’s thirst for art,


speech, beauty. the scurrying creatures

watch as their havens are destroyed


and wonder how they will continue

to live on now. how they will endure


with a constant yearning

and no place to call home.


corpses sacrificed

to please the bloodthirsty horror


named mankind while the

celestial sphere, bound on the rock,


faces the eagle every day unable

to make a stand.


helpless as it watches earth burn

and the fire’s companion


soar up to it and pierce its flesh.

the azure plots its revenge


against the beast named man

and watches as the beast feels


the heat grow after each turn

of the earth. observing the beast’s


discomfort, knowing that the monster

would suffer for its horrors.
