See what happens when I'm couped up inside all the time?
Ripped from the sky
by wild sulfurous tongues,
acrid embers flash.
Seething hissing snaps
inhale vaporized, smoke-charred wings.
Trailing pulverized billows,
corpuscular detritus of summer's languid bobbing
is devoured by black-toothed beatific grins.
Gasping wheezes of violet twilight
salute the corpse of forest freedoms
stolen by the screaming contagion
of our interminable coming night.
