Hillel Broder

When the world ends:
A face of fear passes 
Like a cloud, draped 
With hints of hope, hiding 

In a sweetened heart. 
When the world ends:
A voice in stillness rises
In a silent scream
(as a fish under water)
To a hidden place.

When the world ends:
A covered moon; 
A lone will; nothing else–
Fortunate are those 
Who remember 
Their souls’ song.
