This poem was written after my observance of the Wolf Moon eclipse.

The angels have abandoned their light Eclipsing the heavens into a cauldron of ebony As the stars flare while attempting their escape From the lifeless blackened blanket invalidating existence The Blood Wolf Moon suspends itself As if the orb on Satan's scepter had escaped And found itself wedded to an invisible source Of this monstrous and infinite abyss This empyrean gift deeply burned In the darkest and most hidden hole of Abaddon From its firmament of torment Of human suffering's endless plight Under this cosmic Raven mass From a distance so close, but far and closing fast Impeding on the sensibility of consciousness Thwarting the evasion of all reality The silence was suddenly shattered as demonic toads croak In incessant and escalating voices Like the perilous screeching of rubber on asphalt As they rejoiced in this perfect extinction While all else lay silent
