any
    day
         now


it's
 coming


i watch
  the streets
   for
a sign

nobody can see it
   but
      me


it lives
  in my
    belly


it
  whispers
   to me
in
       the dark


it
     waits


behind
  my eyes



  gnawing
in
  my palms
a growing
     hunger
demanding
       more


ribbons
     of pale
scars
   i wear like
badges
     on my arms
the knife
   sometimes
                helps


it wants
      to help
               the world


i walk
    in the pale hours
        of the dead

i bleed
     hot mercury
in my room
 
i wail
     in jets
   of black
cancer


  i rip
at my face
   for the world
to see

i
     am
             becoming

   someday
     soon
it will come
      
burning
    down
         the streets
across
        the city
and into
        your homes


i hope
       when it
comes
i can still
   see


the animal
      is getting louder
   now

it

will

not

be

denied


it demands
   a sacrifice

it desires
    true
   passion


   it will
soon
     have it


i have seen you
there


can you
see me?


it's
     coming

any
    
      day
         
             now...

This is not-so-vaguely reminiscent of Saul. Which, of course, makes it pretty damned good. I could almost hear him reciting it in his whiskey-deep voice. Great job Alex.

I like REM's lyric, "It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine". No birth comes without a lot of pain. Outwardly, or inwardly as Jerry alludes to. I see outmoded structures and systems that will be destroyed-by force if history serves as a lesson. But I also can see to the other side. A good analogy is the destruction of Mt. St. Helens and the new life that is in the area now. A dead lake of acid sulpher that now holds fish. A black and flattened landscape that is a new forest. "i walk the pale hours of the dead/i bleed hot mercury in my room/i wail in jets of black cancer.." WOW. This may be personal but it has so many parallels to the world at large. Prophetic, I think. Powerful write!

The Beast is on its way, that is for certain. We all must come to grips with our own individual beasts' in order to conquer the whole. Good stuff.
