The uncastrated Sky

Looms

Heavy & hard

Over the cowering untamable

My father’s yowling rage Earth-shaking against the Universal No.

No Beauty

My father’s yowling rage Earth-shaking against the Universal No.

No justice

My father’s yowling rage Earth-shaking against the Universal No.

No Wisdom

& again: My father’s yowling rage Earth-shaking against the Universal No.

then Boom!

sudden thunder

Over the devastated Earth.

Flash of steel

Flight of Time

Horror, horror.

The Sky

Brought low

Blood & foam over the Seas.

Beauty rises

Time reigns

The countdown to destruction begins.
