The second poem can also be found in the blog I maintain for my students. I had 31 poems in this collection as of May 27, 2006 but in April, 2013 I already had 92! And now, October 17, 2013, I only have two more to go to make my target of 110 poems. Having thought I might entitle the whole collection Poetry as Prophecy, I'm having second thoughts. Too presumptuous. Maybe I'll settle for In the Last Days.
