All you see is what was,
Lungs inhaling, people slipping
past a line.
Space collapsing on itself;
time churning, slipping, sulking.
on a face it’s seen before, or a billion of them
Only to leave them,
Or what’s called darkness,
death, or a dead end. The abyss.
A dark point; or a point within itself.
A point not going anywhere, lying still in the middle of space.
A point trapped within itself, frozen,
suspended, sucked of all its time.
A point alive only when it’s named, but at no other point in time.
What’s the point
Getting larger and larger into emptiness.
Universe unfurling into a big empty nothing.
All forms of life fading, disintegrating from light, proceeding into darkness
Fragmenting into space
Just space, taking space, creating space,
Lying amid a billion other empty spaces just like it.
Nearly breathless, though still heaving.
Nearly obliterated, but still funneling
still percolating information
still transmitting noise into
Pointless roads. Until now.
Breaking ground until BROKEN
A howl throttles from eons away
A vision spirals from the blood of these veins:
HOW tomorrow we rise again.
Look up from the deep, the static
All of time and space,
They are still OURS.
