My mind took off in several directions. Rather than identifying where one stream ends and the next begins, I jumbled them all into one, very large abstraction, combining several forms into one. Let me know what you think.
Is as what appears-
Mascara runs but not like blood,
Quill to sponge-
Evaporating from the frozen well
Captivate with potency (the younger still believe),
Haystacks afire, a flame, shadow clouds undertow,
To warn those listening-detractors are afoot (They were our masks)
Tainting of the atmosphere (Blue Grey unnatural misty)
Dusting crops from ear to ear, (Light the match…Drop the Net)
Chemical deterrent for weevils or hare,
…Sty’s swimming yonder….Trees down to bones….Red Barn Orange…Operator, Operator…Am I coming through….Transmission….Abort….Give the signal…Point approaching................(NO turning back now)
Another Pass through
Greens red now….
Kool-Aid for them all (Next Round’s on me)
Professors will discuss
Alternative bards will pen
Scientists will deplore…..they didn’t dream it first
Horses by the pen….eating rotten cores again..
Turn over (It’s still spinning overhead)
Men in mask
War paint for the broken souled
Search [party} no [rescue] purge…
Air grows salty
(It’s just the regurgitation)
Can’t breach out
(Must be debris)
What happened to us?
Had we really dug a trench so large?
(I think you know the answer to that)
You’re not thinking straight
(can you blame me?)
Ext. Unnamed city-Evening
Barking dogs, search parties, flashlights scour scorched earth, Preacher chanting, holding Bible above his head, young boy screams and points, they stop.
Look’s like Luther’s son
Unnamed Man(shaking head)
Jackson, you guys are up
Be there soon, couple more here to finish first
Camera pans wide, men shoveling, adding to large mounts of dirt, dogs scurrying, men moving debris, men and women hugging…Camera pans up and out Fade to:
No comedic skit…Just leave…Just get out… Before you are found…
