The night I ended the world
I died and woke up peaceful.

Purposefully
mightily
shifted the plate

then I knew.

The fault zone first
almost silent

whose fault

just fault.
After the still
inevitable, compelled

the land gave way.
Chasms, tremendous swathes
falling, folding in

Unfathomable sound
feel the falling beneath
foundations
all gone

falling, folded into earth
subsumed, embraced, consumed
I died and woke up peaceful
the night I ended the world.

Fault
