The Silent World

The Invincible Spud

The silent world becomes more silent as the streaks
        of blue
        of green
        of red
are coloring the soggy sky, which slowly leaks
        a spark
        a flame
        a fire
a conflagration of bright light that fills the night
        with fright
        with dread
        with fear
as trepidation is engulfing all. It might
        attack
        consume
        destroy
the monuments to humankind's achievements, which
        produce
        compose
        create
new innovations that are filled with many rich
        ideas
        designs
        beliefs
that thoroughly advance technology. But now
        a speck
        a clump
        a mass
of evil settles on the world. Its fearful vow:
        to choke
        to wreck
        to raze
the great accomplishments of people in the world,
        a bit
        a mite
        a speck
of matter in a blazing universe unfurled.
