Instability (a poem)

The end is closer than we think,

the wild-eyed prophet says.

He, who has spent time in psych wards,

sees visions of hellfire at corner stores.

What are these images of demons and flashes of inspiration?

He rehashes a month lost to the

trap doors in his mind.

He’s stable now, but end times will come again

like passing seasons and storm clouds

that dump torrential rains of illness.
