Lightning flashes on the metal of a lone leviathan
lurching across the landscape.
A robin rests having devoured an earthworm
(which was on its way to nowhere in particular).
Drumbeats draw us closer into the pack -
signifiers of the heart's rhythms between.
Clouds dissipate to reveal the stark radiance
of a sun-drenched sky.
Time marches on, occasionally obliterated
by peaks of transcendence.
Standing on top of a rusty vehicle,
the rollicking world pans out before me.
The verdant earth splits wide open
and a shining symbol, towering, sprouts forth.
