Today the sky broke
The lightning struck 
The thunder faded and yet
The stench of heat remained.

Words pelted and thoughts groaned
Eyes shuttered, lips smacked...

But the sky remained pitch black 
Croaking under the blackness
Of the shrouded cove

Tries and trials clashed 
In their eternal marriage of
A vagabond life;

Where no peace, no hope, no light
Can enter the orifices of pale words...

Today the world spoke,
The earth shook, spat and curdled
And anti-death woke into anti-life
As night slithered into day.
