Planetary migration

Where were you when the planets were falling
when the sands were shaking
when the oceans set on fire
when the trees were speaking in tongues
when the gods were praying to some higher power
deliver us from this fury

Where were you when the stars were drowning
when the mountains were walking
across the seven continents
to join the winds in their ritual of bones
and call the moon to witness their holy union
blessed are our forefathers

Where were you when the rivers were melting
when the deserts turned to stone
when I stood at the tip of Sagittarius A*
to shout your name into Andromeda
and call on the sun to follow you home
save her from myself

Where were you when the forests were freezing
when the tornadoes were dancing
and met the hurricanes on the beaches at dawn
to celebrate the festival of the Erinyes
and call on me to act as amanuensis
liberate us from this mania

where were you?
