BIG TEX BURNS

Gimmicks
from showmen
good humour
from angels
the deep south
on fire, no door
marked ‘exit’:
last days.

Uncomfortable
ecstasies
sleazy metal
soundtracks
sweethearts
of the rodeo
vanishing
stage-right.

Armageddon’s
coming
down on
Los Angeles
in league
with the ones
who fell to earth
in the bible-belt.

Spirit rages:
misunderstanding
the good
evil arises
the best becomes
the worst, then:
refining furnace
end-times.
