The night war began

the sky caught on fire,

blue flames that could consume worlds,

and stars pierced with our bullets


tracing trails of silver lace into our black atmosphere

and the cries from Earth rose

and resounded in all the corners of the universe

in silent echoes that only emptiness could hear

and our deaths fell back into the Earth,

bodies with punctured lungs, fractured ribs,

and minds that forgot but still are

all into the fire at our center
