The Main Course

Post by JarodKAnderson » Wed May 14, 2014 4:07 am

The pointed prows of the ships descended in perfect rows like inverted picket fences, the sky peeling back its lips to show off sharp teeth.

Fifty years earlier, they didn’t hover. They landed in the capitals and the scraps of tech they tossed us made us hungry for the real meal, but we didn’t understand the bargain.

The skies are all teeth now. A shark’s ragged bite above every line of latitude.

When we look up into that universal mouth, we pray to find lips or a tongue. The machinery of speech. But, not all mouths were made for words.
