the anodized prophet

a shallow pneumatic whimper
belied his position below the shadows
as dusk fell like a stone curtain
indenting the surface as it struck
with a dull clap of concussion
and a quake of percussion

needles of electrical synergy
crackled through brackish crevases of skin
across the ribbed back of the anodized prophet
as fingers of ebbing lifeblood surge
between behind and beneath
the head heart and feet

to rise from the shackles of gravity
lift an optical gaze towards the sky
was all but a dream inside a deviant brain
never prospective to the practical mind

to take flight with uplifted ailerons
soar unimpeded to heavens unknown
throw off the bindings shake off the chains
and fly where no others have flown

ambiotic power pulses through fiberous muscles
stretching popping surging neurons weave
a cyclonic meshing of epidermic bonds
fully aware of the cross he must bear
though the anguish and anxiety
leave his vision impaired

needles of electrical synergy
crackled through brackish crevases of skin
across the ribbed back of the anodized prophet
but his struggle to stand
against the pressing wind
against the will of the earth
has prevailed

drawing in a deep breath of heavy moist air
erect against the sun as he drinks in the warmth
solar devices at full capacity
amplitude modulated waves
translated into fluid motion
the anodized prophet enters the realm
assumes the mantle of reign
