If There Had Been Prophets September 13th, 2012 On those suffered banks we sat down and wept. There the prophets, if there had been prophets, would have baptized us in fire. Who says impossible they fill his mouth with ash, they quench him as if a man could be made steel. A crooked way the world wends, and the rivers, and the prophets. Go down and tell them what you have seen: the the river burned and was not consumed.* Rust Belt Chic launched this week, and we had a fine party. See for yourself. Read about how we were feeling earlier that day. And then join me, won’t you, in being all verklempt? *from River on Fire by Dave Lucas Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.
