“Pan Whistling at a Blackbird” by Arnold Böcklin (1863)

Across the Sky

Blackbirds vanish into the ocherous mist

Exactly as they had done for thousands of years

They turn back to remember the past as it was

Before a limitless infinity appears


Stray shadows flee across roofs in ghostly rhythm

Wakening trapped gods, their breath hushed in compromise

Broke out of bounds, unloosening the hold of time

And as the sun set they snatched the shrouds from their eyes


All tomorrows bleed into the edge of perception

Under an ineffable light that bore an ancient heat

Reborn beneath a hurtling flame across the sky

Where their immortal bones are no longer obsolete
