Evolution of a Time

January 11, 2009
By Adam Cheng, Palatine, IL

I once walked upon a grayish beach,
Jagged were its stones.
But the shore was of no allure,
For it was stained pink, with my own.

And so, I now sit on the meadow of yellow,
The sea swings—inescapable, from the moon.
Of what wrath it wields, I cannot recall.
Tormenting without resolve, like the grains between my feet.

I see Atropos, her hands filled with broken strings.
—Laughing on snowy dunes—
I see a person in the distance.
Drowning.
