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.
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.
