Infinitive

A. Harrison

Today…

Infinity ends.

Forever lost in depth.

Forever taken from life.

Arranged to pointless patterns

Never amounting to anything

Yet yielding to thought of mind.

Living eternally

Exculpating the guilty and,

Exemplifying nature's best.

Sacrifice is all it takes

Cascading down the mountain

Horrors oversee the bloodshed

Rationing the flow of corpses

Overlaying land.

Thoroughly scrub scarred flesh

Between the fingers -

Even upon the chest and back

Raking fingers through scalped hair.

Grease caked fingers

Extending to the water

Reaching for unattainable sterility.
