My claws are scraping

The shell of the world

I have burned it black


Because of you


I have become a hideous thing

Switchback and all teeth

Eyes gleaming murderous


Touch me again


My insides are molten

Flaring like a volcano

As I remember the reaving of my body


I will burn you to ash


And remember, I never cease to do

Cracking open the earth’s mantle

Crawling forth out of rent sky


Because of you


Wailing grievously

Within the dark everlasting pain

Breaking my teeth on stars


I will only weep-
