The Night Glows Darkly

Raging, fierce winds of Mars marched across Earth’s skyscape, in the season of the decline of Man Fall of the God-chosen specie, autumn of impending extinction Twas an apocalyptic mushroom noon when the radioactive rains descended upon the cities of carnage War-torn topography uterine shelters were closing, as phallic missiles were radar target trace fire opening Bomb pockmarks marring the beautiful faces of the cosmopolitan ladies Uranium continental premature blood splatter brings a copious end to the foreplay disaster chatter Civilization shamefully undressing their disfigured body of technology in the warped climax throes of gamma-ray grief Nuclear twilight offer enticing mutated midnight promises; cobra kisses of cobalt breath, instant non-gratification death delivered on a decaying silk bed of roses Black widow drone infertility moans poisons the stratosphere acidic harshly See the silhouetted pain reflecting from the montero-shaped mirror Oh ... how the grim night glows darkly! Hear the military pawns of Mars, grunt boots on the ground dying Civilians combat the fear of pandemic infection, as the Venus flytrap mouth of human aggression is ravenously opening wider and wider Man’s morbid love fixation on death will make him try to extinguish the light of life Thus his fatal end, he cannot blindly see When come the nuclear twilight, the winter night will glow so ever darkly!

This poem is well written and contains unique imagery. My favorites lines are "as the Venus flytrap mouth of human aggression/ is ravenously opening wider and wider".

Very insightful write. Love the way sexual words are metaphorical for the carnage. I really need to come back and read this a second go because there is more being said here than meets the eye. I'm short on time tonight but I promise to return to this very deep, intellectual write.
