The silence was broken by the first bong
echoing like a trumpet into the darkness.
The second crack snapped,
illuminating the night sky
in a flash
that split the darkness with jagged blade.
A new universe opened.
Roving together in singular unity.
Life’s true destiny is brought forth
in barbarian yawps
that scream frustrated enchantments
to the gods in challenge.
It rips the lucid
from the placid realm liquidity.
The comatose are awakened to the world
and all arise.
