Psalm for the Rapture

[audio:http://shadowcabinet.vianegativa.us/wp-content/uploads/2007/05/psalm-for-the-rapture.mp3%5D
Farther away
much farther

high as a predator drone
above the caution tape
distant as a satellite from
the chalk outline on the street

safe from the suck of the swamp
its cottonmouths & mosquitoes

free from the burden
of earth & the deadly
irredeemable stones

beyond the sting of conscience
& the discomfort of moral ambiguity

rapture me
in the always-now of amnesia
in the never-enough of consumption
rupture me
ohgodohgodohgodohgodohgod
