Reversal Morning

And it all came down,

on that morning when the world

awoke to find itself no longer kept in place.

No law but truth

and through truth,


The sun rose

and fell again,

as quick as an implosion,

or the blink of a god’s eye.

The rain rose up

and the waves went back out to sea.

Children climbed back into their mother’s wombs

and hid,

and the rich swam in sewage,

dining on rats;

as the homeless traded on Wall Street.

All the whores and junkies

rose up to meet with Christ

on the front lawn of the White House.

I awoke to see no real change;

for even though the trees had returned to seed

and all life died

and death lived,

I was never there.
