The wasting sun’s rays

bring winter’s madness.

A security drawer slams shut.

Countless optics

show a lesser world.

A guitar, crucified,

hangs above a drab bungalow.

Innocent sunlight’s erased

as ancient moons wither.


The infection of asphalt

spins city’s dreams from all lips

upon a flagship called Calamity.


The new Pandora’s box has just arrived.
