Prescience



Those colors mingle into blindness;
They say "Revelation is here!"
It's the pre-spice haze of Muad Dib.

I don't think so.
My innards convulse with the bitter taste,
but the spirit of prophesy fills me
like that giant hollow we found in the desert years ago.

Voice from Heaven, will you tell me the end of my life?
What will happen to my people?
Do these endless pools reveal more than shimmering water
or wasted tears?
I'm glad to escape; I'm glad to be inside my head.
I see nothing, but the vision is perfect.
It's so true; we don't need knowledge; there's no point.
Surprise keeps us wandering like nomads, looking for the final oasis.

God, you shouldn't have chosen this vessel.
For I will corrupt what I now observe as truth.
You see, I have no choice; they have it coming.
I hate everyone too much to care if they live or die.

Dune rules. I actually write a lot of poetry, but I get shy about showing it. I will post more this summer. It is all pretty pessimistic stuff.
