Mt. Rainier August 20, 2011

Filed under: poetry — laurenmichelleotheim @ 12:07 am

Bald head hovers, alien, as the Death Star above the trees

Waiting, Silently to gun them down in the violent expLOsion it resembles

mushroom clouds like ash all around so only the bulbous crest is visible.

A warning: run while you still can!  Imminent death

will occur sometime

in the next two weeks

to two thousand years.

    an intriguing write…is there something happening in the next 2 weeks at mt ranier?

    • Not that I know of. Mt. Rainier has been recognized as still active (it still has mini explosions and mudslides, that sort of thing) and it is believed that it will eventually erupt again and geologists basically say it could happen any time in the near future or in thousands of years.
