For a Brave New World: Five

Exodus

after the divorce

you evacuate the broken home

a natural disaster

wild fire

grab what you love most

find the nearest exit

run as far from the carnage

as your lungs can carry you

there is nothing

living

left inside

outside

the neighbors gather

gawk at the spectacle

all your failures

folding in on themselves

Pray the flames take it all

this is God's work

now the baptism

holy water

to cleanse

the corpse

a crowd

combs the remains

for answers

when

where

how

did the destruction begin

if they dig deep enough

they’ll discover

the altar

where the blaze

began
