Missing Link

I saw the future…
It was raining blood
My feet are still wet.
I retrace red foot prints
Back to the wall
I stepped out from.

I watched
Purple skies burn
While fiery fingers
Fucked the clouds
Until
Orgasmic lightning
Effloresced
Through the atmosphere.

I inhaled
Weighted breaths,
The heavy air sits
Like metal in my lungs.
bystanders
Watch from
Custom made fish bowls
Placing bets on my
Existence.

There is nothing green…
The landscape
is a stranger
Draped
In stainless steel,
Feasting
On the remnants of humanity.

Flying lights
Pretend to be
Birds…
Their songs
Replaced with
Mechanical clicks
As the new skyline hums
With information.

I saw the future…
But…
We were not there.
