Crooked Sky

Brother under all of night midnight crosshairs shooting star explodes sprinkle down trail of tears. Traversing the other side of darkness spirited by an ancestral moon starless night---stark silhouettes always something in the desert sky birds flying excellent birds. Dormant fire burning          in you comprehend the filament of your persona the permanence of your being. The wind swirls and birds rip out of Crooked Sky rip out of dense dreams. It's raining feathers desert birds winging west fluttering sadness falls to gentle ground. From crevice of Crooked Sky mirrored birds in silent glide their feathered opacity unfurled cradle down to Crooked Earth. Brother under all of night burning into bedlam and heaven ghost bird sings.
