Nothing Lasts by David Estringel - Twist in Time Literary Magazine
Stars fall against the murk of the night sky, a rain of fireflies, dying in mid-flight, hurtling, heralding, upon gentle heads blow, cruel truths. Nothing lasts. Nothing lasts. Listen to the harmony, that inaudible peal (Ong), that sets heavenly bodies to spin, amidst everchanging kaleidoscopes of the Void’s sacred geometries, pulling, tugging at Fate, with the waxing and waning of single points of light. Nothing lasts. Nothing lasts. We, the kings and queens of planets and moons, tread upon paths of celestial dust wishing, searching to join hands in communion with the witnesses to our ignorant freefall into The Bottomless. Nothing lasts. Nothing lasts. *Previously published in Terror House Magazine in November 2018 ____________________________________________________________ David Estringel is poet and writer of fiction, creative non-fiction, & essays.
