Swallow the moonlight,
expose the emptiness
what does it mean
when the stars crumble in pieces?
How does one make peace
with a barren sky burying
the sun in his secrets?
Did galaxies move to comfort him
as his screams travelled light-years,
to reach the Earth where he bleeds.
From the mouth of volcanic rock,
bathing the ground in sunshine tears
to wash down the moonlight
