vagrant, you follow in the wake
& stand there in the break
as morn gapes & forsakes
unable even to call heaven down
to the now open but yet doom
already too late & still too soon
for the rest which remains unborn
in the emptiness where you quicken
as a world fades on another horizon
unknown a spectre that parts aghast
in the nothing which ends as the last
in time's invincible ruins reaching
a hollowness beyond touch & dream
in the tyranny of history's remains.

Gift of Tongues

Wonderful poetic depth.
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 12/18/2005
What's in a name? Imaginary belt in the heavens in which lie the ecliptic, sun's apparent annual path in the sky and the paths of the moon and the principal planets with twelve divisions called signs. A Sci-fi of the world at its end and to represent the Zodiac are the quilted memories. Nice poetic patchwork, Robin!
