Kutulu Rising

That ancient lord of the depths
whose call to chaos
lies within the visage
of pitch black eyes
and scaly, pale green flesh,
that father of an eldritch, alien existence

Surpassed only by the horrors
of his mother-lover.

At once, my vision split
and though my eyes never departed
from those inky pools embedded deep
in the structure of this infamous cephalopod

Witnessed at once,
a descent from hazy white mists
unseen layers surrounding
our rocky atmosphere
that fill the void between heaven and earth
equally as valid as the second sight
revealing his ascent.

A rising tumult
bubbling and scorching the seas
on his journey from below the murky depths
during the scaling of Sirius
One of many celestial signs to herald
the coming reign of anarchy.
