STONEHENGE by Erik Fuhrer

by Erik Fuhrer

The apocalypse goes to Stonehenge during the summer solstice
and sings Joni Mitchell’s Blue while tripping on shrooms

The apocalypse is a teenager
The apocalypse is three billion years old
The apocalypse blows perfect smoke rings with its chipped lips

Where were you when you first met the apocalypse
What poem were you reading
Don’t name a T.S. Eliot poem
Name a poem without the apocalypse in it
Hope that such a poem exists

Erik Fuhrer holds an MFA from the University of Notre Dame. His work has been published, or is forthcoming, in BlazeVox, Crab Fat Magazine, Dream Pop Press, Crack the Spine, and Maudlin House.
