Armageddon Sunday morning

& to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges

King James Version, Revelation, 2.12

I dream of the collapse

of everything we hold dear

probably on a Sunday morning

things will just stop

the last man will walk

the suburbs

on feet of brass

& will be defeated

by the commonplace light

the toys   the wet cars

the frying bacon smell

the privacy

& no one will write

to Ephesus or Pergamos

where there are angels

all that old stuff

for we have been eating

the future & selling

the past & our children

are gone to hell on skates

& a black horse follows them

something out of the ordinary

& his hooves smoke

where they touch the street
