Pit of His Stomach

I saw a creature: his stomach stuck out behind him, enormously swollen.

in the pit of his stomach; he breathes again.What is he?

Lying beneath me with thy sounds and sights –
A city in the twilight, dim and vast,
With smoking roofs, soft bells, and gleaming lights.

Destructive and Healing

As destructive as life,
As healing as death;
An institutioner of strife,
Just as prone to bless.

Yet with an evil trend;
As it was the beginning of things,
It can also be the end.

It is fire!

Smashed To It!

What measures out time,
Until in time
All is smashed to it?
