Timeless, Sightless

your shadow before you
your shadow behind
twins stretching out
time lines collide
silhouettes of black
converged on you
rising above
like a distant atom cloud
at the intersection
of past and future
now is an explosion of immediacy
quick, nauseous, at last
arrived to strike
out of the dim dusk of deep centuries
to illuminate mankind
like the light of the Lord shines
to reveal upon us the starkness of sin
one fast blast
cheating at dice
in fornication
all of us at play on Pompeii
feel the quake
the belch of smoke
reek of sulfur
the choke of ash
descendant, drifting
obscuring the sun
until the dark and the shadows are one
