    Hey all, been a while. Hope you enjoy the changes in my writing style since when I posted here years ago. This is a brief straightforward bit of black humor story telling poetry.

    Elaine's Handglass

    She is called Elaine's Handglass for She reflects the peaks of the Elaine mountain range whose glaciers fill Her.

    Oh, yes, a "handglass"
    It is serene as that.
    On the surface as clear as God's tears
    is so smooth a mirror one would think
    upon entering you were falling
    into the sky itself!

    It is more akin to the acids of Hell,
    I know why It stands so barren!
    There is only one semblance of life,
    the death of any who dive in,
    suckers no larger than a thimble,
    more voracious than pirahna,
    swarming up from icy depths
    in numbers enough to shame the stars,
    and they don't let go!

    That is why It is the 'Handglass'.
