[Poem] Falls Down

Glimmer of hope faints in her eyes
skies dull and fall from the raised hands of Atlas
and we all fall down again
the ray of glamour she shines becomes dull
the trees summer is gone
only leaving spring winter and fall
we all cry at the loss of the sun
the planet moves in its orbit to a far off place
we for once feel the true bite of heat and the true bite of cold.
She cries as it rains
the sheen of oil
the green of antifreeze
her face is stained with toxic mud.
she closes her eyes to the world
as it collapses about her
