Polar Bears

Vicky ZhouAugust 1, 2023

As the earth quakes,
Splatter across dull nears;
Everything remains hidden in the crevices of a tragic tableau.
Darkness dawns
as an entity unseen makes its way
small indentations in the landscape
It carefully skins the layers of its cage
The absurd, leaking balloons turn solid.
Nothing transcribes as well as the pools of Lakewater
Carved by the blaze
worn away
