all the lost of everything

sky cracked open and out spilled
thousands of angels,
hair and wings ablaze,
limbs flailing as they fell.

“even their screams are harmonious,”
the newsmen said,
their surgical teeth gleaming
on the television screen.

the people looked to each other for comfort
only to see the Dragon
staring back from the other’s eyes;

and so they attacked the eyes
until everyone was blind;
smashing mirrors
for the worlds they reflected.

the only people spared
were the ones
who never gazed upon the face
of another.

in secret orbits
the prophets
dreamed of battered pianos in broken deserts
swarming with lizards.

as charred angels
fell lifeless to the ground;
as all the music of eternity
crescendoed without a sound.
