God lay dead in heaven

 God lay dead in heaven;
Angels sang the hymn of the end;
Purple winds went moaning,
Their wings drip-dripping
With blood
That fell upon the earth.
It, groaning thing, Turned black and sank.
Then from the far caverns Of dead sins Came monsters, livid with desire.
They fought, Wrangled over the world, A morsel.
But of all sadness this was sad -- A woman's arms tried to shield The head of a sleeping man From the jaws of the final beast.
