Green sated cosmoses precede,
I have seen this picture somewhere.
Who is in?
Who is out?
In whose mind do these events remain afloat?
On whose cheeks do tears that trigger grief
And melancholy spill?
To whose orb do these witnesses call?
There is a rattling cry at Kisheme’s door.
Some talk of malign men,
Something of dense blood patches
The doormen to Earth’s portal scream an abomination.
History remains fixed in a frame.
