A RUIN, 2021 @ JACK

The Ballad of The Fates (EXCERPT)

Shout it loud across the fractures of time.
Our voices aligned
in three part harmony fall short.
Frayed voices gone hoarse

Free-falling into the fog,
Unfolding into the sea
Drowning in the colors of a million Pacific sunsets,

          -The moon is in the wrong place.
          I’ve never seen so many stars.

Exquisite corpses
embedded between eternity and the wildfires,
To be devastatingly extinguished
Or 3-2-1 blast-off, a hero’s escape?

Decentered and scattered-
Pieces of us turned clouds,
The Spinner, The Cutter, The Measurer.

The Fates.
