In the Crater ~ part 1

In the Crater

I am here
in this crater
Devastation in every direction
but up
And I can hear her crying

There is this little dirt fountain in the center
And cracks and scratches
radiate from it toward the rim
There isn’t a rock bigger than a pebble
There are these . . . I guess they look like skinny antlers
of blackened glass
Fused sand memory of the heat of the blast
No wait
There were clouds and . . .
Thunder
Lightning striking the Earth like an electric snake
A banshee scream

Seconds
It happened in seconds
Absolute devastation in seconds
Millennia will pass before the scars of this Armageddon are blurred
