boy leads me
     across stones
                  and emptiness
'til we reach
    the place
 where children
     drag the sun
    until it is drowned
and devoured by wolves

and the screams
           burn me raw

       my knees buckle
and my ribs
                        are crushed

boy flickers in the darkness
            casting apparitions
      against the snow
                  that drill through me

in a symphony of chaos
                and devastation
      that intertwines with my hair
               until i am bound
and blackened
                 and carried off
          into the shadows
 of an angry sky
