…And Silence Looms

The guillotine extends

And annelids we are

Bisected harshly,

By all the edges we’ve embraced thus far

 

The adder puffs

The lamprey’s splash turns red

Stinging, struggling

Tearing, gnawing upon

 

The wolverine

And the panther, both

Sharpen, their many rows

 

Leaving but

Prayer…and then

Only Silence—

Seemingly

Forever looming—

 

Another string undone.
