Upon Spiraled Indifference

Indifference, though at times
we speak with forked tongues,
aspiring from the backwash
of cowhide and leather,
sometimes forced to breathe
with cold knives protruding
from our subluxed spines
while we war until the sky
paints a discomposing scape
of bloody red pools,
like a Glaucester sunset
decending its course
upon November winds
coveting the Flemish Caps
of Labrador.

Yet the earth she spins around
with indifference...seemingly,
still i'm not yet quite convinced
as we blanket her black soil,
God-Woven, still
with the stain of humanity,
from the war for of black gold,
a War some hail, 'holy godhead'.

Still Earth she makes her rounds,
maintaining her balance
despite the vertigo
that mortal existence
has leveled on her
despite all portentions
biblemarked by John.

Now struggling to balance
her bruised, fissured spine
her lifeline and axis
ostensibly numb
to our indifference,
our shame, our blind foresight.
Or perhaps she is waiting
for the last scene and laugh;
our Revelation?
