Above/Below – Staring at the Walls

Above
there were titanic bodies
like shadows floating through space
as easily as an skating child
might glide across an iced-over pond
but with far more grace.
The greatest of these
emerged with schools of smaller bodies
keeping stride
as though their world
was meant to orbit a great body
a planet up to a point
within the guise of an aquatic world.

Some of the planets
though mostly unknown
were assumed to be
aggressive
primarily predatory things
and yet
even they had their followers
in this microcosm.

Below
there is nothing but the darkening deep
a previously mentioned
(somewhere else, not here of course)
abyss
filled with whatever horrors
or fascinations
the imagination can birth.
