40 Days

1. “Now is the acceptable time.”


Prophet Joel’s alarm is ringing off the hook.

Days of penance begin with the old pain,

Of new students dying

Before a mechanized death machine

In the hands of a distraught child.


God calls this ashy day:

Stop. Just stop.

Become more. Become someone different USA

Than you have let yourself become.


These are conversion days.

Stop. Turn. Begin again.

Brother Sister America:

You’re no good like this.
