Killing Kings

Thunder in between the pennies and the dreams
Wonder what it means in secrets and in screams
Underneath the clouds, dripless at the seams
Moving full and loud, invisible to me.

Raining gravity needles in the sea
Pulsing hands and feet drowning in the deep
Rise up to be free, draw back down in sleep
Shadows never speak unless they need to plead

Seek the skybed shade
Alive inside the glade
Frozen low and far
Nestled in the stars
Seek the killing kings
The ghosts of nameless things
Blood-mapped books that rage
In memory and age.

Shake out the century to burn
Stand where the windlass starts to turn
Time to forget and to unlearn
Shake out the century to burn

Something small and true, a whisper at the moon
Infant crawl and coo, old men turning soon
The mission now is new, the world in full the crew
The timely venture due, at dawn we puncture through.
