A Pitiless Sky

Post by PhilipWill »

Under a pitiless sky, those about to die march towards the blazing mountain. A garden of ashen statues crumbles to dust at their passing. The jagged rock trembles as if in anticipation. Some collapse on the climb, but at least they can hear the voice of salvation on the scalding wind: “Another! Another!”
On the horizon another mountaintop puts on its bloody circlet, tinging the blackened heavens as red as the priest’s blade. “Another! Another!” His eyes are ember and smoke and fear clad in faith. Another body tumbles into the caldera. Still the gods will not relent.
Another. Another.
