Book of Revelations

November 27, 2006 at 4:41 pm (Blue Kansas)

When the last train
Leaves from the coast
Shortly before the flames come
You will want to read this book
You will want to remember the names
Of all the saints
So that you can pray
You will want to pray
When the images erupt
And the numbers reveal themselves
You will want to know
Which road leads where
When the familiar forms
Are no longer
Within your reach
When you realize everything
Is just dangling on a thread
When the fire of judgment
Singes the ground beneath you
You will especially
Want to remember
What the white angel said
Just before
You plummeted to earth
