Groundhog

Updated on September 6, 2017

Burrow the remnant

Of a bright, charred past,

Concocted in the webs of elation,

Chastisement of the Giants plodding

In eternal tribulation.


The long-forgotten cells,

The petty caresses...

The chiding hours,

Thrills,

Soft and sour kisses...


Under thine heel, they said,

The serpent's skull is severed,

Yet the slither's skin thou wear,

Proud and unrepentant.


Grovelling under thick dust,

A strange earthling is born,

Belying both honor and pride,

Groundhog - torn...
