Graduates Of A Barren Nation

Poems written in the Sky, phrases one can read; bed of incomplete passages lying in the orbit. Dots, Stars encode in binaries; Yet missing words in between. Everyday Stars fall; as though the missing words are verbs; what a barren Sky we have!

Poems written in the Sky, phrases one can read.
bed of incomplete passages lying in the orbit.
Dots, Stars encode in binaries
Yet missing words in between.
Everyday Stars fall,
As though the missing words are verbs;
What a barren Sky we have!

Inside ocean Stars fall, tides rise.
Bleed onto the shore those in its belly.
A community with noose attached on files.
Until knuckles bruise, feet rest.
Unanswered cell phones over the dead.
A mighty and a brave tiny shrew.
And wet gown soaked in unemployment magma.
What a barren Shore we have!

Sphere over the shore, bright Stars moon around.
Its barrenness; lava of corruption in volcano.
Sharks in the desert.
Friendly poverty which hugs like cold.
The Solar system forever in phrases,
Incomplete sentences unchecked,
As Stars fall, also in binaries.
