abandon

 

    • ambient echoes
      • eclipse the dreamscape
        • with the chiliad murmurs
          • of a cold spectre
            • spelling its ominous wrath
              • in lion-tongued vapours;
                • writhing,
                  • whispering,
                    • withering,
                      • the old winds
                        • disperse their deadening essence,
                          • entombing humanity’s foliate soul
                            • within the greying silence of grisly eternity.
                          •  

                              • no celestial song
                                • mourns the dull passage
                                  • of these stirless creatures,
                                    • panged by their stark bondage;
                                      • no watchful spirit
                                        • breaks into ired being
                                          • before their holocaust,
                                            • their dead reckoning.
                                          •  

                                              • only in the forgetting—
                                                • that sun-blind forgetting amidst the desert—
                                                  • can the last, fallen gods
                                                    • walk the waking worlds
                                                      • on the back of that old, coiling serpent.
