people talk of stumbling in
    to armageddon
like it's some predetermined stop over
along a coastal highway to salvation
even if it brings a billion deaths
and the sinners' minds and hearts
are pitched upon a mountain
like a pile of shoes in the holocaust museum
    yet there will be those that say
    we deserve it

but the abyss might be a state of mind
    you need not be swallowed in
bury your swords and draw your blood for a line in this desert
    a blockade of yucca plants
    will grow and circle our tents
