Chronos, the girl

milky way at night
Photo by WARREN BLAKE on


into and out of

time, with neither sense nor discretion

lost in the flaps and the folds

where wrinkles ignite like coal

coalesce like moths when they find things

like white lights or brilliant lightning

jeweled like snow or glimmering gold

follows bright stars to lead them back home

without cardinal direction

deformed in arcane dimensions

searching for something beyond

someplace she did not belong


from spaceless black

a crack of light appears

and through its aperture, a voice is heard

having endured oblivion

once before

this voyager asks for a girl

fingers stretched towards sparkling fissure

eyes wide and spotlessly shimmer

cracks contort like thunder bolts

distorts then disappears



verb: come together to form one  mass or whole.

JD – Chronos, the girl, is about a time traveler who gets lost.

  1. Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    terrific blog!


    1. Glad you like it. Can you tell me what device are you using and what is overlapping? I checked on a few but cant find the overlapping. If you can give me a little more info maybe I can fix it. Thanks.
