A heartbeat professed

on electronic strings

in the isolation of a desert

windstorm.

 

Lightning strikes the floor,

extends tendrils that worm

jagged through the ground

in a phosphorescent glow.

 

Beats increase.

Dust grows to a gargantuan.

Sky vanishes.

 

Behind the outline, a beast

moves across the desert floor,

crawls through canyons

on thick tornadoed limbs

that thunder over plateaus

grip sharp toothed rocks

for purchase.

 

Lighting strikes twice

its form massive, gloam

in a devil’s dusty eyes.

 

Fuel burns,

feeds on wind,

and heat.

 

The sleeping giant,

abandoned

from stygian legend,

untold,

has awakened

to rule its vast kingdom

once again.
