the apocalypse of each and every day

is its own quiet secret

in the heart of each and every one of us--

creation swirls all around us

in the earth and on every other dimension

and all we can see is a vortex of chaos--

but is it chaos--or just manifestations

of an order so vast and incomprehensible

we can only stand there slack-jawed before

its precision?

does it really matter to know?

the processes grind out

without mercy or pity--

but what mercy or pity there is

is in us--

and that--is today's apocalypse--

today's revelation

leading to tomorrow's

and the next day's--

door after door

opening to the Ineffable

at last--
