new year’s champagne

diamonds in the sky

timeless wanderers

still to my perception

frost bitten earth

sparkles like new year’s fireworks

 

guns pop like champagne corks

drinking the glacial breath

drifting across a melting world

motion and elements

burning slowly still

 

not a foot fall to be heard

from the forest dwellers

seeking comfort underground

cold air and body heat

evaporating sack of meat

 

stars burn bright

across the breathless distance

moon sickle falling back

pulled down behind

the cedar-toothed mountains

 

I am alone

my breath and I

the clap of volleys fired

a million blinking stars

from forever to the earth
