staggered by a blow

six hundred million times more

fierce than the first time


man delivered a sun

to bloom and scorch upon her loam

untold shadows


no fire this time in shattering waves

though now, as then, so many souls

vanished from this tangent


and the swallowed star,

made on earth, extracts the same

deadly half-life toll
