The Seer's Crawl
Can you see the Moon ?!
She solicits emotions and fortune ;
Stealing her light from the Sun ,
Fated to eviternal duty while she croons .
Beneath her and to the right
We can visit her stubborn neighbor , Mars .
Behold his warlike might — !
Glowing red against the monochromatic veil of dying stars .
Hypnotized by this transcendental wall ,
The truth is that I am lost in their esoteric thrall !
Greedy for their abstruse lessons and
Showering myself in
" Please , enlighten me with the sight ! "
before my mortality mercilessly sees to it
that I succumb and
d i s s o l v e . . .
