Those who shall keep it.A young man and a woman walked through a pair of automatic doors onto the balcony of a tall building near the heart of the city. As they were walking they could see the Traveler in all its glory. Heavy gases leaked from its base and dissipated on the buildings below. The newly risen sun beams across its Eastern side; casting a large looming shadow across the great wall that encircled the city.
A Guardian drop-ship exited warp just over a skyscraper near the Traveler. The young man and woman stopped at the ledge and watched the drop-ship seemingly float towards them and grow in size. It wasn't until five seconds after it came out of warp that the two heard the crash of its engines. It then took a sharp turn towards the opposite side of the city and disappeared behind the Traveler. All that remained of the drop-ship was a bluish-grey cloud where it exited warp and a fading contrail that loped around the Traveler like the rings of some far off planet.
"I remember my Father" said the young
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
