as we know it (20160629)

i misread the signs
and altogether missed
the portents

slept through the ominous
omens and peculiar
prophecies

the rain of blood
should have been
my first clue

and i suppose the swarms
of frogs and locusts
and locust-frogs

might have hinted that
something
was up

but i was busy
holding your hand
so the end of the world

well
let’s just say
it could wait

      1. I’m glad you didn’t fight it. It’s a wonderful counterpoint to some of your other darker works.
