Collecting seashells

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

A Meteor Left Me Hollow

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.
