The Big Bang

followed by the Raptor
Jurrasic Park
the snarky Apocalypse
Yeats’ Second Coming
rides again
two panoramic
percentage points
almost makes a killing
Elijah opens a door
wants a cold beer
no chairs
nothing to speak of
what’s long gone John
stays in Vegas
Jimmy the Geek
has two hard drives
beneath his belt buckle
rams fight it out
on the Plains
of Infinity Drive
a big bang
heard around the world
a sneak preview
the Apocalypse
Conrad’s signature
Marlon B.
never read the novel
won’t be the first
apprentice
to go cold turkey
inside of Mobile
the falcon surfs
the blues again
doesn’t giving a shit
the falconer
flies to El Norte
without a Green Card
shot down with a big bang
poor peregrine flutters
Elijah sails
the seven seas
on the HMS Pinafore
past the wall
with a thousand other
refugees.
Attention
all big game hunters:
the Big Bang
was a Revolution.
