Saturn's Tears

''Life is rock rearranging itself.''

Antiseptic, sterile
Bone clinic whiteness
Of the surf
Sea shells
Paper thin or lavender skeletal
The frightful radiolarian symmetry
Of the great ocean death factory
Slowly slowly
Calcium is returning to crystal
And the crystal of Atlantean bones
Is a pale pink sea shell by the shore
Molten rock is filled with corpses
Cities vanished
Our bones are still Atlantean
Neptune's commandments
Still being sinned against
Our bones are honeycomb tombs
Vaults of ghostly imaginings
Now crimson, now white

Ever Christ-like
The coral bleeds into the blue
