Where The Vanished City Stood

Then where the vanished city stood, towering
Above the Plain of Knives, we saw a shimmering
Transformation. The mist-shrouded desert land
Shuddered and quaked in delirious agony, summoning
Ancient, fearful terrors from beyond the wall,
Beyond the limitations of human thought or wonder;
Obscene, gigantic, disintegrating, multidimensional
Fleshless avatars of torment – such unnatural
Emblazoned monsters from an abyss of unknown malice.
