His companion mouthed a silent cry

he watched, as his feet fell towards the sky

the stars’ hypnotic dance, and it took his breath

away – but today, that beauty meant death.

Panicked, he stretched and searched and reached with his feet;

try as he might he couldn’t reach the stars underneath,

so he jaunted he charged he leapt and he wept

and as he watched the crystals forming something crept

up on him – a thought, distant, cruel and crude,

words of a still-warm friend: “It likes to play with its food.”
