Forever Came Yesterday

Nothing lasts forever

not even nothing

or forever

til something comes along

just ask what lit up the big bang bong

I was there

I saw

I set the match to the universe

said the god that doesn’t still exist

the two dimensional deity

the Zeus to your Yahweh

and the Ancient Greeks never knew better

when they were raised to reach Mount Olympus

this friction of the fiction of religion

still, this life force demands a death sacrifice

to prove it exists

or else we’d never seek shade from the sun

or miss its warmth

when winter wraps its cold barbwire scarf around our necks

and even light dances macabre

upon the murder of shadows

that just want to tango against the wall

nothing lasts forever

not even nothing

a world of white would blind our sight

till we could see the darkness

to know what we were missing.
