THE ASSAULTER

You were aging by nights.
Days will not seek 
to defend you.

Drawing the landscape 
of a snowfall, 
you will die in a portrait.

The world meets 
you again like a jawless 
lamprey with sucker mouth.

Beyond the blues 
lies a tower, where 
you will not find the stairs.

In battlefield, stands 
the army of red ants, ready 
to pound upon the moonlight.
