as in to teleport
away from the decay of this world’s veins.
as in the time
it takes ghosts to traverse the planes.
as in the flicker of light
when even the brightest stars grow sick and wane.
as in fluttering eyes
expelling the caustic burn of acid rain.
as in to erase
behind the levee that stops the hurricane.
as in you’ll miss
the signs as history repeats in an endless refrain.
