Introspection

By Alexander Etheridge in Issue Five, July 2022

Hell-storm overtaking the hills,
the blistering winds come forever now.

Listen in the new black dawn
to the end of space and time.

Hellfire all around, a hurricane of dirt and splinters.
The seas dried up just before the sun was lost.

Look into the doom of red stars, darkening
stars, and thrashing cinders. Look into

the horror in the mirror becoming
the horror in the world.
