Apocalyptic poems, posted every m-f.

the future

picture cancer, and aids

single mutations
toppling empires of grain or apple

picture guns that fire more often than you tell them to
bombs that are smarter than you are

picture wars fought on the basis of other wars
justified by platitudes of peace

we live atop a retaining wall
riddled with leaks

take anything good in this world, any little thing –
puncture it,
and watch the future rush out.
