He is a man become a fish -
Soundlessly gaping wonderment
And completely failing to survive
... Out of his element.
She withdrew into herself
In utero in vivo
And her frustration leaves her Midas-like powerless
... Everything is ashes.
They searched for long hours into the night
Looking for the marks of passing
While meat reverts to vegetation
... The choking world.
Sirens cease their shrill shrieking
The remains of glacial labour now gothic lace
Granite left, limestone gone
... The ceiling is skyclad
Silence and dust, sad and dusk
All decline from movement to the same end
But dawn, warm & wet, windy & wooded.
... After darkness, light.
