Hail

They were translucent, towers

Hard as steel, and made of glass

Stretching toward the sky, glowing

 

Those who lived inside, people

Fragile as butterfly wings

Propped up by the poor, greedy

 

They were titans, on mountains

They were illusions, and dust

Washed by rain, scoured by wind, gone

 

Blood, there is water in it

Bright, from the sunlit fountain

To drink, it was forbidden

 

The Titans marched on the Earth

The foundation of the world

Radioactive, poison

 

We are on the edge, clawing

The collective we, falling

Broken nails torn their beds

 

Look up, you can see through it

The shell around the planet

Thin as veil, and burning

 

The world on fire
