Favorite Quote:
"...I wish none of this had happened." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."


Mountains of liquid
spilling
drowning fields on golden scales
Libra heaves a sigh.
The sky begins to
weep
but
it is the sun that cries
and the dark seepds from the salt.
Cotton becomes unspun
black beetles walk
from the fiber
sound strangles the living
and Death laughs at the absurd.

The author's comments:
A somewhat-take on the destruction wrecked by Pandora and her lovely box.
