Jackal in Stasis

from The Remnant Mass by Cetus



in stasis the ground below him erodes away
in stasis the other jackals turn to gray

the pack is gravity, they once stood watch
but fickle gravity, in time, depart to seek new mass

in stasis steady and brilliant like a star
in stasis the jackal watches from afar

stasis — a crime — snake in the grass
the pack is hunter
it destroys to remains
the pack is hunger
stay alive — survive
no crime — just feed to live
stasis is dying — there is no give

tastes them slay gazelle using his own teeth
slaughtered at the well — a scene devoid of grief

now outside the pack
now without the pack it’s growing wiser
now without the pack it’s losing teeth
now outside the pack time erodes away

watch - time erodes away

in stasis he still feeds upon the land
in stasis he still feels grief


from The Remnant Mass, released June 30, 2015
