The faithful Moon kneels down to pray.
A splintering mile of juts and shards,
Of stealthy spears and slithery glass
In ambush lies – sinister as greed.
And as, serene, she drops her head
The poisoned peaks of bladed scrapers
Thrust their readied javelins hence
And pierce her martyred pupil blind.
Bleeding throbs of the faithful Moon
Upon the metal canopy douse;
Feeding down the glassy sheen
Her blood white, her white tears.
