Nick Romeo ~ Legacy

all I see is
death
around me

what still lives
is suspended In space

on a hammock
connecting Earth and Moon

the Sun
has been kidnapped by Pleiades

held for a ransom of
two bushels each:
Wheat, barley, and corn

I own nothing but
yards of skin stitched
To some bones with violin strings

The stockpiled remnants
from a world long gone

I build a fire
to keep
Boreas’ breath at bay

not long ago
I was born
here

the Yucatán peninsula
in the Chicxulub Crater
carved by the asteroid which
killed the Dinosaurs
