A dead whale crossed the earth,

guided by the dark bells

in the cathedrals of gravity on fire.

He passed through me on a bridge

built from the ashes of a dream.

 

I rebuilt the whale from the glass

echo of his song and became

his passenger journeying

through the seas,a harpoon,

broke us into fragments,scattering

us across the seabed.

This one had me by the throat until the closing lines. Something dissipated that wasn't ready to (poetically). The preceding nine lines are as effective as anything you have written, Eclipse. Your originality knocks my old blackbird back on his tailfeathers!
