Jared Beloff - End of Prophecy

Artemis punctures

the clavicle of the moon

memory’s aim indelible

as the runnels of tears.

Niobe stares through

a pillar of sunlight

reading false auguries,

in children’s voices

rounding an empty basin

resonant in the rotten slick

of fallen leaves,

veins bloodied brown.

Years flake and drift

unrequited faces

like so many cracks

as the foundation settles.

She stands there still,

an absent, emptied mother

a pillar of light, inscrutable as salt

or the duties that hold us in place.
