fire glows, orange embers
  fixed points in sturdy earthen ice and clay,
  All cattle slaughtered, seeds in storage, an inventory
taken, registered…
  in the psychic web of genetic memory
  weighing time against itself. Absent,
the paltry fickle gods of future races, distraction
  born of comfort and idleness
  the many faces of death are stripped away, there is
  only lack, and the fear thereof
  measured mercilessly by the creep of freeze and
thaw. On pre
Galilean oracle the spectral procession
  moves predictably across the pigment and scratches in
stone
  angled light, odd precision signals
  a fixed point in the cycle of celestial synchronicity
  where hope returns.
