Sample text:

The monster reaches,

To tear the poison sky.

The poet’s wife

Weeps tears of blood within her grave

A prophecy of Promethean fire.


The monster’s glittering eyes, multifaceted

Reflecting an eternal desolation.

Creatures within the steel belly,

Slaves to the god of commerce,

In the service of the damned.


A foul concrete skin

Mocks the soul of the mother of creation

Hideous spires, like claws through Heaven.

A modern monster

Born of the hand of man.
