A second hand clicks, the abyss opens,
and a raging eternity begins
volcanic nerve ending hedge row of sooty obsidian trees
grasping at magma oozing across the arching horizon
molten solar flares lashing like acid dragons tongues
grunting beasts and hateful harpy screeches echo
a second hand clicks
gracious zephyr spirals in the ashes
a drop of cool water springs from the wind swept surface
for now supple redolent reclining goddess
a bed of nails becomes embroidered brocade silk pillows
moaning lisa smiles.
a second hand clicks.
