Sequins

Poem by: Nixie

Summary

I was thinking about evolution, and how sooner or later the earth will begin again or end entirely.

Curiously I look up into the night
At the thousand sequins lie ready to dive
 
Holding hands earth dare not wither
Swimming tides the oceans quiver
 
But the dark is silent and waits to plummet
Till catapulting fists into her stomach
 
Once black as black the background roar
Mountain for teeth her volcano core
 
The remaining sequins like pins for eyes
Watch as heaven and earth collide
 
She burn’s her fingers, her head and her toes
The dust is black and dancing tornadoes
 
Smoking silk from hollow ears
She does not cry or wipe her tears
 
The land soon bleak and vast she yearns
Whispering words as the sun returns
 
The eyes have gone, at least for now
But quietly we wait, for the sequins to fall down
