Sunday Sentence: Balefire by Shann Ray

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I've read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

            In a few short years
            the older brother would be gone
            the maw
            of an ancient canyon,
            his dark vehicle
            in open air
            as it leapt the barrier

            and fell
            far into a valley
            black with trees, where
            the detonation
            boomed and
            the forest
            bloomed with fire.
