Off the sands of time,
I race to Grandfather Clock.
My broken shells are gone.
The beach is empty.
But salt and canvas.
What new life
Can I create?
Enjoy an Excerpt
The raid is so excruciating. How do I describe a punch From space?
The asteroids never stopped Or so it felt. They mortiﬁed my atmosphere. A meteor left me hollow.
It had far too many clones, Born of selﬁshness. Dominance. Envy. Rage.
A being of vampiric touch, He robbed me Of my organs. Cut my walls And burnt my innards.
Take and take And Take! That is all A herd of meteors Can comprehend Or succeed at.
Dignity is as clouds, Having had their form stolen, And morphed to the sculpture, Only pain could love.
I must save myself. This galaxy Could murder me.
