Magistrates dream of plague

plagueOur skin worn thin
Our bones exposed
Life reduced to ticks

From forest caves and azure skies
We crashed upon this earth
The years they passed and so did we
But, resistance would be brought
*
Always object
Never subject

Can you see us? Are we there?
Are we there…
Can you see me? We are watching
We are watching…
You are fading…
In the daylight… Fading…

Always upon you, light never ceases
Lost from yourself, light never ceases
Thousands of eyes, gaze never ceases
Light is upon you, life in you ceases
*
Through fiction we saw the birth
Of futures yet to come
Yet in fiction lay the bones
Ugly in their nakedness

Yet under this mortal sun
We cannot hide ourselves
*
Those eyes and (this) tower have seeped into our open veins

Uncoiled was its strength
And our souls en masse
Poured down in sheets of rain
And dissolved ‘neath their feet

Circling further down
Our wills dissolve ‘neath their feet
*
Rise in the morning air
Greeted by cinders of the dead

Syndic calls your name
Show your thinned face at the window

Is this the next last day?
Prepare to be carried by the “crows”
Heavy hand upon the land
Feel its weight inside you
*
Magistrates dream of plague
Tongues loll in anticipation
You are awake in their darker visions
Drool slips from grinning mouths

The plague is forced on us all
Is it there? Are they there?
Shouts of fact abound
But whispers of truth burn through
Is it there? Are they there?
