i put my ear to the ground the sedimentary shift in tectonic plates reveal the monstrosity that is approaching our way species without the human limitation
breaking the barriers of the known existence perhaps this is life as we know it
the end the made up calculated possibility of encountering something beyond us
beyond human conjured dimensions this is it this it it I tell myself from listening I go
to my knees prostrating there in reverence of the approaching calamity i will gladly
give my life to this on knees still
I bow once my fate is sealed
I bow twice the rhythm connects
I bow thrice I remain as I am-
crushed crushed crushed.
