so close now to the time we've long awaited--

the turning of the age--

the revelation at last--

and very few ready to receive this apocalypse--

and fewer who don't know anything about ready

but ready nonetheless in complete ignorance

of the yawning reality

stretching up ahead--

the sky opening inside the skull

the vista vast beyond seeing

another dada experiment

nearly a century after it was fresh

but in eternity--its own actuality--

and it lets us in--

it pours into the skull

and encloses us--

this apocalypse actual at last--

centuries of prophecy coming to term--

no longer legend but eternal fact--

not some tale in the shaman's vocabulary--

but beyond it--beyond it--

the actual that engenders the distortion

that is our eyes blunt by veils--

now they fall--

now they reveal--

the revelation at last

the turning of the age

the time we've long awaited
