Gaze not upon the noon, the hour of sol - star-filled eyes fade.

By Future of Despond

the world

terrified of
a broken eye
I cannot
don't want to see
please no
please stop don't
show me my

broken eye
weeping, softly
stream of fluids
and silent, silent
dread -

darkness comes
hazed clouds
of saline pus
(a galaxy of broken glass)
blot out the
stars this time

blood fleck red dwarf stars
iris tissue fragment nebulae
beads of fluid constellations
imprints the decimated retina
-the vast magnificience
of the
eternal, endless heavens
permanently reflected
achieved by humans at last
in his ruined eyes

do not tell him this

- he cannot see it
