E. Kristin Anderson
Bigger than ever,
ruins expanded, an emergency
growing a galaxy in late accomplishments.
You turn, point, seek out the dark.
She begins, rolling,
Boots double through clouds, cutting hits.
With a jolt, you defy barriers, wave the air,
the ground. Send out three;
you solid blast.
