A bright streak Mars the sky Evidence of The ancient eye An orbit unknown An iris ablaze A dynamo Pursued through town Man in black Evade the heat You sip your little beer Outside the storm nears And when you rise I spy you list Our sages say The missing page From the old grimoire Tells who you are This is a dangerous game The final hour! Nightly in these dreams I’ve followed your every lead Taking flight TO lands and ACROSS seas A touch of lamb’s blood anointed In their sweet slumber For what is a precious life? You showed me direction With your lullaby tones Such that they might be spared
Dear God! Don’t you hear my cries!?
Muted toned Membrane Listening well in the din Submerge Through the shimmering A static pool Strange my hands… Is this my reflection? Or my face… Is this the end Of everything? To yellow fields Say goodbye To week old pizza And receive The Transmission Undivided
