Abstract Destruction

Broken bones half-buried in the desert sand

Decaying carcasses rotting in boiling rays

Piercing needles poised on driest trees

Shimmering pictures branded in broken mirrors


Cracking twigs tossed raggedly in tornadoes of dust

Mangled serpents attacked by flying crystals

Deadly poison soaking into fractures of the earth

Scavenging vultures chewing on maggot filled corpses


Destruction engulfs worlds surrounding each peon

Abstract suffering through the personification of things

Forever losing nature’s design of surviving the harshness

Never-ending suffering through lack of everything
