Seeing Stars

 

Supine among the trampled grass,

With blades harshly glistened and freshly trimmed,

He lay

 

Constellations dancing before his eyes,

Graceful Cassie floating unrivalled in onyx velvet,

Waterloo’s witness

 

Embraced by darkness,

Whose love radiated indifference for him, his life, his dreams,

He lay consoled with iridescent rocks

 

Time held its breath,

Suffocating, wheezing, blueing,

 

He rubbed his sour temple,

None the wiser of the universe beneath the palm,

And that it had lost a child,

 

Flash! They puckered at him,

His hand reached out,

Calloused fingers fell defeated

 

Bang! They teased him,

His hand reached out,

Calloused fingers closed confused,

 

Through slitted eyes they runned,

Through slit eyes they ran

 

They were him and he was they
