The Rising Phoenix Review

everywhere whispers to us, a promise

strained forward
against human impulse

as if they could continue

when they no longer could

they withered like
corn husks
left in the sun

the bakers;
the bricklayers;
the farmers;
the doctors;
the carpenters;
the mothers.

for some among us
the world had ended

in the smell of the wind;
in the creaking of the metal
behemoths of industry;

in the hushed breath of lovers;
