And when the moon went down...


by Samuel Derrick Rosen


The beast that spouted love
At the heart of the world
In the style of the times
Penned a love letter
To the moon that rose
Above the giant sign that read
Welcome to the terrordome

But it didn't get
For some reason or other
Posted
It just lingered
On a table
Next to an empty bowl
And a broken clock
And a blunted knife

And when the moon went down
Degenerates threw a wake
For the death of Post-Modernism
And laughed in unison
At eternal backsliding
And the conjunction
Of tomorrow's airplanes
And the traffic
That moves always

Douse us in your mercy
O Lord!
