in case the world goes pop (for a new friend)

ask me again
what i think of you
in a year

i said

forgetting the mayan calendar
and its end in two months
or thereabouts

in the instance
that the world explodes
like a cherry bomb

while the ash and dust
that was us unfurl
into vacuum,
in more of a snap
than anything
as big as a bang

remind one of your particles
to ask one of mine
as we race further
into unbecoming

and i’ll answer

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
