Hungrily, Space-Eater by Iggy Oddity

Original Color Gator by Ren Brian

I am an amalgamation of wires,
Moon encased, silver-bodied,
Sacred blue distilled into shock-
an irresistible hazard-

Suffocating an atmosphere
too distant from the past.
God devouring its children
Not realizing this brings everything
Closer to its end.

We have strayed too far-
The earth once molten potential.
Someday – sky swallowed by a mouth of fire.

I am a shapeshifting unfathomable thing
Of beauty.
Promethean holy grail,
dangerous yet lovely.

I hold death cradled within folds, against tissue, under shadow-
A red so beautiful in its alikeness
to death – hungrily, space-eater.
