little more than a platypus’s poisoned barb

black lightning
arcs between
my splintered ribs
from the binary
stars cast in
photonegativity
crackling in an
ebony crescendo
eradicating the
fossilized plaque
of coagulated hope
vaporizing thought
as i vibrate in
time with the
paper lantern moon’s
unctuous silvery
regurgitated glow
a walking umbra
catastrophically close
to a total meltdown
losing all control
of a failing system
scarring the æther
with apocalyptic verse
a thorn piercing
the soul of beauty
with a poisoned pen
