The Darkening Sky - Poem by Tovli Simiryan

Sometimes I think a dark blue sky
with numbered stars
is synonymous to gravestones
for smoldering computer corpses
calculating beyond eternity
their endless probability.

In the distance an ember
teases heaven;
creating glare,
like g-d’s
attention span;
sinking from age
between little suns
that struggle,

letting go
