Sailing atop giant metal wings,
Strapped and welded, an exoskeleton
surrounding mind, body, frame,
Shroud covers the being,
Inside and out; revealing eyes only.
A metal Demi-God, unicorn in armor
Battle ready, leaping and flying,
Swooping in and out, unshackled from
Human existence, a descendent of
giants past, real metal gods themselves.
Metal shines, the dials whirl, click
Turns the wings backwards and forward
in time; a man and machine
Built to defy eternity and time together.
Metal and man, bone and earth
Collide, instantaneous fire erupts,
Drum beat of dragons, fire eating
Rockets scorch everything instantly.
Giants tremble for a moment; shudder
On what’s to come, reluctant movers
Lift the ground beneath, fire spews
From rocket burning frames
Built within, a Demi-God abode.
Man and bone, metal and earth combined
Minerals and silica dredged and fused,
Replacing and changing the human,
To an exoskeleton built Demi God,
Standing alone at the helm.
Move, chose mountains to stand alone,
Change the horizon, bend it to your will,
Shape past, present and future,
Amorphous single shapeless moments,
Roads crossing randomly, color the landscape
Lead everywhere but nowhere.
Giant holds the mountain within,
Willingly bends it to his will,
Inversions of mind,
roads never travelled,
Paths never traversed,
Time, past, present and future,
Held within, unchanging.
