The Asterisk

Driven out from a cloud of coal
Mesmerized by lightning bolts

Oblivion of loving sound
Satyric sprite forgets the name

An outer layer of brimstone
Cocoon of internal combustion

Powered upward and straight forward
Above dangerous melancholy packs

The end is also called the beginning
But the loop seems interminable

Laid down close to the stone
Listening for code in quakes

After an interlude of quantum silence
Revelation breaks the marble surface

An outpouring of life rehabilitates
The carbonated atmosphere
