Verse: Prelaya

Inspired by + dedicated to @niclone

This is
the before time
the larval interval
the lacuna

all I have
is sufficient
for all the work
that remains
an uncoupling

to take down
the grave images
one by one
to burn them and
in doing so
release and
be relieved of
their memories

the flames
will rise like altars
like the veins
of a catholic night
and all will be
destroyed, not lost

what comes next
is uncertain
perhaps a reckoning
a regrouping
maybe a resurrection
and revelations
of the new Jerusalem
to come
