Apocalypse 1

Apocalypse 1

Reid Sexton
Edition: Spring 2019

What will we do
when we can’t come to terms
with the things we’ve done
When the mistakes we’ve made
return to confront us
one final day
Run? Pray?
Neither, for by then
it will be too late
Avoiding this fate
would be to turn
around a freight barge
in stormy seas
The brightest hope
for the distant future
is that heads will emerge
cooler
in the radioactive breeze
