I climbed dune after dune rejecting any idea of rescue.
That somehow a pillar of fire was even there…was simply inconceivable.
I could not see it. Yet, I began to falter as I always do.
The world has changed and I had not been accustomed to such things.
For I was too occupied living in the past trying to find a back door of sorts to feel something lost oh so long ago…
I kept fighting the future because Eliminator, Jr. said so,
talking in circles with a logic
that pierced my reasoning as a whole….
Double rainbow appeared in the afternoon sky
amid kickball pick-up games
and ice cream trucks.
It was a covenant of sorts,
but maybe not for me.
For someone else I reckon….
