Cataclysmia

No crowbars needed
No ramrods, no battering rams
Please do not fight violence
Please do not fightThe death knell has not tolled
it is not for thee
nor me
nor us
nor all
Calendars end, but creation will not

The single strand that binds
is entirely universal
All your concern, nicely put
is unwarranted
Sleep safe tonight

Without cataclysmia
your life will not have less meaning
Instead
you can know truth

Truth:
It is what it is (alive, breathing, fresh, pure, whole, true, real, peace, serene, just, knowing)
It works the way it works (fullness, completion, unity)

Rest, knowing that your signage
“The World Is Ending!”
is simply unnecessary
and that everything is going to be alright
Tonight.
