Have no fear, I have much more to say. Now that things have settled down a little bit, I have started back to work on my graduate degree. Time is tight, but I hope to have a new post out soon.

Variation on a Theme

Two sleepers
Wake up
To find
Their world
In ashes

The first,
Surveying the earth,
Lays down
And waits to die

The second,
Surveying the sky,
Finds beauty
In the ashes,
And weeping,
Finds beauty
In the tears

Both now
Beneath the skin,
There are only enough
For one

Author's note: I have had a question or two about the Twinkie reference. There is an old joke that claims that Twinkies will survive a nuclear apocalypse.
