Six places to be when the world ends

I

 

That day the newspapers reported

the end of the world was coming

at four p.m.  All our maids went home

 

to die with their families.  My mother

cleaned the house herself. In bed

afterwards, I brought her lemonade

 

and lay down next to her. At four

I fell into dreams.

 

II

 

That day we woke on the beach,

 

stole rosaries that hung from the boards

of parent-beds and waited for the horizon

to meet our noses.  Four p.m.

 

miniature hands flutter Ave Maria’s

the sound of waves lapping, noses meeting

sand,

gravel,

belief.

 

III

 

Four p.m.  Stumbling our way

back to drunken family condos, we spilled

tear-stained bodies into dreams, our rosaries

still warm in our pockets.

 

IV

 

That day I dreamed of a boy with a smiling voice

who taught me how to fly.  Past the dream pillar

we’d rise and well our bellies with sound

until we burst into a thousand silver molecules

and filled the sky.

 

I understood the solitude

that drives across abandoned towns

and desecrated mountains, that whispers

 

V

 

the rubbing sound of stars, the silence of being

underwater, waves lapping, sand,

gravel,

belief

 

VI

 

That day the newspaper reported

the end of the world was coming

 

at four p.m I lay with my mother

and fell into dreams.

 

4:03, my mother slapped my thigh,

asked what the hell was I squinting for?
