I, Apocalypse

I ride a grasshopper like a wolf

  down the red evening sky

Titans kneel and render up their keys,

  elementals whine and lick

 

The heavens curl up in flames

  behind me as I descend

The firmament goes molten

  and I roar its golden strength

 

I, a lion-man in mane of mind

  and intellectual fangs—

  Claw-Heart!

Urge my mount to devour

  the greening earth

  in its gnashing mandibles

 

This, this is the way the world ends

Not with a heat-death, but a growl

 

Yes, this is the way the world bends

  down

  to spring up in glory

And I am the herald the Lord sends

  in

  to ravel up the story
