armageddon oops

July 6, 2017

What if it all explodes,
the universe inside
pushed through
its fragile shell

overwhelming
all that exists
above the big hole.

What if bricks fly
as leaves in a firestorm,

cellos burn like straw,
fingers napalm
lips paper.

Will you hail the second coming?

Buddy knows first

He leaps
from the couch
and growls at the sky.

Then looks back at me
to say goodbye.

Soon come the winds
straight from hell
all we can do
is bark and yell.

The Earth is an ember
our spirits release,

another failed planet
another failed peace.
