Benthic temple as black as night
Old as the ocean depths themselves
Girt by sentinel, Nearly as ancient
Proof to all but the most violent shockwaves

Custodians disarmed, Temple seal violated

Unbound by time
Cyclopean entity

Anathema to mortal sentience and its puerile perceptions of space.
antediluvian slumber, unbroken for eons,
through the births of lesser races, to their throes,
in a cyclic rhythm, echoing indifference.

Awoken, roused by fumes of slaughter
oozing through the fractured temple altar

Through riven, once monolithic seal
A self-fulfilling prophecy is birthed

Architeuthis lumbered,
Tentacles engorged rigid with rage

Acres of iron-flesh, wrenching matter beyond
Leagues of tendril flailing, in blind vehemence
The roaring collapse of the, threshold twixt worlds masked by a
cacophony, of endless gnashing.


from The Great Dying, released June 16, 2014
