Oxygen Is The Flame Of Life And We Are Charcoal Wanderers Lifted Upon The Cosmic Winds Of Combustion

1.
supersized life
lumbering
prehistoric monsters
traipsing through
ferocious forest and foliage
 
gulping  
bountiful O2
 
the chemistry of more
evolving colossal muscles
 
the architecture  
of domination
 
pressed thinly  
into the pages  
of the past
 
like gaudy giant wildflower  
blooms
 
bold and brilliant  
as the regal sun
 
streaming towards  
the sky like high cliff waterfalls
 
the stunning insects
buzzing or flapping or crawling
to the sound of cooperative symbiosis
 
webs upon webs  
upon webs
 
the intricate choreography of life  
sparking like the rambunctious  
geometry of wildfire
 
unleashed
unlimited
 
but doomed to eventually unravel  
like a massive rope
tied to the dove-winged moon
 
2.
shaking footsteps
fossilized into permanence
 
tumbling mountain-fallen rocks  
headed toward an ocean
teeming with the watery  
primordial secret biome
that began it all
 
like palm trees swaying
as tropical treasure glints
 
we are starward  chests  
ripe with rubies
 
and diamond-studded  
marionettes
 
whirling blades of chance
wildly forged with the hope
of extant organisms
 
lightning feet walking  
ostentatiously  
into the hungry maw
of steadfast oblivion
 
extinction lapping against
the shores of reality
like tranquil waves
 
pregnant with the sleepiness
of a gorgeous silhouette

fate's bittersweet kiss  
 
epochal chocolate feasts  
laid out in the universe's
most dazzling banquet
 
dine
dine my loveliest
creations
 
tonight
is eternal
 
for we are the breathtaking  
emerald flood of existence
 
miles  
and miles deep
 
and tomorrow
will be captured in amber
 
tiny prismatic eyes  
still looking out
at what once was
 
and what  
shall soon  
be
