THE RUINED GARDENS OF GLASS
Take heed lost wanderer and pray to thy god
Found at last the ruined, glass rimmed land
Which you gazed upon in a spurious dream
Of blossoms formed to appease and scheme
Above torn skies that hath burned as magma
And bore the ancient spell of alien aroma
Wake from wonder and delay where thy trod
Bound in glass are the serene, grinned damned
Who were praised upon by forgotten queens
Born of miracles eclipsed by rotted machines
Here flies the whispered lies of vendetta
Cried the ruined glass gardens of Xenthropa
