words spills out
like the senseless digital drones
of a thousand year old satellite
soaring through some dark, empty heaven
declaring in its brazen, metallic klaxon

that once,

there was a life that blazed too far from here;
a life that burned too hot for some,
a life that burned too cold for most,
but a life nonetheless that sang like raven…
the largest of the songbirds,
clipped and bound to a tower of people’s fear,
sending its voice where its eyes could never go
that it might live forever
