In a starry night an adolescent thought starts a rivalry. A baby moon squirms. No hour was safe from terror in dark. I climb the stairs breathlessly.
The great divide deepens in hearts. Incisors bite the tongue, grey cells bleed inside. Thick ash has not stopped the cinders smouldering under the veils of flushed peace. Cupped tears wash the feet of death, a caravan of words moves desolated, cutting on the edges, before you say goodbye to green vision.
Today I am pulling out the nails from the walls. No hangings of departed centuries. No portraits of exiled flames. Only the face of truth, burning at the interface of untruths.
