They tell me its a new year 
That there was some mysterious change or birth 
Of common time, that this body fragile 
With the wear of turbid life 
Slopes closer towards an unknown millennium. 
Waht did Nostradamus say 
And all the sage and mystics who are peeled 
From the fruits like a pear from its skin 
Leaving the vulnerable flesh to fetch the bite 
Of worms wriggling that crawl within 
What did the Holy Christ and his apocalyptic Revelation say 
Where is the beast and in what palace 
What town, what place, the Herodless generations 
Shall tumult to decay? No more 
Myths, no Los Ninos nor bending space 
Time is the endless going and coming until our death 
Earth the same old cycles make. 
This mind has carried the Babel of collective thought 
Long enough, it must bloom its own flower 
To grow its own tree for the sun's simple fire.
