Release - 2/8/1993

Sweat drops slowly
from the massive form
a vein in the temple
twitches, twitches
eyes glazed, pupils all--
the coarse rigidity
of muscles in spasm
exacerbated into definition
granite shoulders spread
in supplication
pulses of breath

tremors and currents
wrack the body
shivers of flesh

the templar vein convulses
rips and showers blood
all vessels explode
feral lips retract and mouth
bone grinds, fragments--
skin sloughs off
as muscles tear and writhe free
tendon pops and snaps
collapse into slivers of flesh
and Atlas falls, silent.
