What Comes To Pass

May 1, 2011
And what comes to pass
after the last wind blows
after the last dry leaf is blown away?
What comes to pass
after the last cloud drifts
after the stars wink out
when the day is done?
What comes to pass
as the last footprint dries in the mud
and a sweeping wave clatters ashore
to fill it?
What comes to pass
after my soul has fled
my crumbling body upon the Earth?

The world will turn
swirling the oceans with lava
in curls that will climb mountains
wrap along craggy cliffs
reaching towards the grave
of someone who didn't matter.
