little more than a platypus’s poisoned barb

black lightning
arcs between
my splintered ribs
from the binary
stars cast in
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
