Undulating black globe
Soaked in filthgiving mist
Unending trails, grey grass
Amber sings on velvety black

Phobos transpiring
This enclosing openness
Stretching a ox hide tent
Across an infinite space

Caves open to plains
This has always been the way
We are recalling now
This is sacrificial land

Beneath burdened brow
An empty cavity
A burning ox heart lies
Upon a soggy field

Stinging smoke wafts across
Overwhelming the damp air

Distantly, a voice ululating
From beneath a twisting arch
Too distant; distorted
By elements and time

"These imposters sold charms that made people invulnerable in warfare and fortunate in hunting and preserved them from all danger"
(Charles-Etienne Brasseur de Bourbourg)

The homeostasis of a species
Like a pendulum knocking
And then overcompensating

Artificial magnificence
Godlike reconstructionism
Beneath uncaring whims
A Minotaur with impunity

This cycle unwinding:
Irrefragable but undefinable
