Poem: Where the White Whale falls

The quickening mist breaks like waves
under the lucent light that was the moon.
A desperate exhalation,
the dying dreadnaught of the sky.

The sword that split its skin
jewelled red on metal –
an open wound still steaming
a thousand lost souls skywards.

The being broken, fractured in three,
a trinity crowned purple
and bared naked as a bruise.
From the dark its death vector

on the scent of the jealous witch,
and where the white whale falls
no one comes to weep.
