The King In Hell - Poem by John Libertus

There is a king in hell
who will not leave
'til all are free

Don't be afraid:
behind you, along some precipice of faith,
Omega, the last
herds the very wolves like sheep

    I like this better each time I read it. I was going to mention my favorite parts, but it's seamless. This is just so spare, so taut - it's astounding. (Report) Reply
