deep and far below the world we know,
passing through shades of distant hues,
we destroy this moment to form another:
radiant suns draw silhouettes,
shadows bend and pirouette,
in a cumulus entangled sky.
goliaths bloom, float and tumble,
in slow-motion parades.
the far off belch of electricity;
a howling disturbance of dust;
sudden torrential waves of mercury,
cascading into crystal streams,
through caverns and crags
full of ghastly fungi and geological squalor.
suddenly, a breath; a nudge,
a shoulder-parting aura;
blades of razor sharp solar rays
kaleidoscope their way through the stratosphere,
branding the forever crackling skin
of planet nowhere
