of gods and men

humans turn their
 worlds
 belly-up, barbed branches
 tearing apart their
 seams.
 watch them fight a war now,
 play-things
 enamored with the indefinite — 
 losing their minds over
 elusive and tormenting
 humanities
 because they once had a taste
 of such heavenly ambrosia.

watch from the skyline,
 eagle-eyed
 overhead with underhanded
 magic, lancets slice through
 pseudo-divine blood pacts.
 wonder the questions, wander
 for answers —

why do they eat up the inevitable?
 piece apart timelines, time
 zones separate then and now
 isolation is human nature.
 with a flicking wrist
 we could decimate
 anything, anyone
 would cower at the thought.
 but in their ignorance exists
 unfeigned fortitude,
 solidified
 by their thirst for ungodly
 indeterminate joys.
