Apocalypse Now

		Starring Martin Sheen and Marlon Brando

Your eyes the color
of vintage denim

have a fancy fashion show
in your mother’s kitchen.

A pretty endangered moth 
flutters into murderous light

buzzed by your desire 
to cry what babies can’t.

It’s leftover night again
in hell’s heaven of heroes.

So let’s dance like zoos
closed for the apocalypse 

until there’s no pretending 
potato chips exist.
