Layers separate
color dies
bits and pieces fall away
underneath, the part that connects and transmits
the center unfolded
becomes dead
its eyes turn white in its head

the wave disintegrates
crashing against rock
windblown against your face
laughing on the edge
of a cliff

it does not exist
typing any of its sequence
a letter, syllable or word
nothing is left
no index
no search engine

It is gone
but not dead
how the end always is
how things fall apart
how leaves die
colors fade
the music dies away
human was static
nature was the noise
close your eyes
count to ten
the process by which
an object loses cohesion
into interstellar medium

He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions
to her perishable breath
his mind would never romp again like the mind of God.
So he waited
listening for a moment longer
to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star
Then he kissed her
At his lips' touch she blossomed for him like a flower
and the incarnation was complete

Petals falling away
one by one

Castles built on sand
return to the sea
their walls shattered
like rock whispers
in yellow light
on a bright blue ball
against the cold dark
something wicked this way comes
