Hourglass

The heavens crack open
As the hourglass falls from the sky
Unleashing a sea of flies
Shattering like a movement sublime

As sunset bleeds into autumn
In the stillness of the night
Memories dissolve like snow
Peeling back the years
As soldiers raise their broken glasses
Drinking down their tears
