a cosmic laceration

as i stared up
fingers interlaced
behind my head
at the infinity
of lights flickering
through the evening sky
i saw a great rent
a tear across the
ebon eternity
and felt a chill
in the face of this
cosmic laceration
an undulation of
murky darkness that
slithered with a strange
serpentine pungency
and i knew without
knowing how i knew
that something watched
with a fell hunger
from beyond the stars
