Terrible Serpent Eats All Calendars

The definitive
brightness
was not
morning’s arrival
but the trillion-
trillion megajoules
of an explosive
detonation
that melted
church bells
before they
rang alarm
and sanctuary.

And turned glass
to puddles
after the expanding
shockwave
knocked them out of
a billion frames.
