shatter-perfect symmetry

one thousand suns

glinting hard in fragments of sky

eyes unblinking

vision burned into retinas

long abandoned by tears

pavement like so much hot rock

head lolls to one side

sky swung out of view

quite suddenly diamond cut trees

curve into the mirrored canvas

no blinds to flutter down

over empty glazed windows

limbs scattered

so many snapped branches

littering the driveway

daylight slides across blue sky

nothing changes except reflection

heart silent in a white rib prison

mouth dry

as ashes
