BLACK DEATH

Christensen Low

 

Eternal Woodsman

Black leather entrappings

Moves gracefully

Silently

To do his bidding

Unheeded

Silently and quickly

Moves without breath

Or blink

Creaky bones

Of ages journey

Without stop

Without mercy

Without breath

Or heartbeat

Falling those called

Ending life

Ending story

Ending journey

Ending breath

And heartbeat

Axe is sharp

Quick

Silent

Ending in a blink

Indiscriminately

Lie upon the ground

Buried by time

Buried by breath

Buried from thought

Buried from life

Without breath

Or heartbeat
