across this evicting skyline
scores of inclusions wait to soar
floating, scaling, opinions in clouds
doldrums of disorder snorting
loudly the light is courting
a savage mutilation intrepid
bright mockery laughing
scoff the darkened faces below
mankind a breathing bully
accost sheathes of blue and white
and bruising shoulders so wide
triptych fizzles wild and stars embark
a prism blitzing sunlit slips
feathery bedlam flailing away
the turning away from living
singe silence on windfalls blowing
a world is succumbing scarred
relenting, swelling, opening in shrouds
tormentors stomping selfish sin
swimming when tides come far in
the din inside the cold fool regime
none for them when the lights go
