My eyes opened To blistering wind To shards of rain & Blinding light, To the claps of Titans Erupting in bursts Above Around Below. Rods being flung From angry, Olympian fists, Hungry For the Earth beneath, Each detonating A hydrogen bomb Whose shockwaves slid Through the spaces of my frayed, quaking atoms Dousing every […]Read More Float On?
