the road not taken
Two brothers. Do not choose sides yet.
Once upon a Kansas highway...

A lot of things can and will happen tonight and a lot of things will change but listen for the sound of an engine, squeaky car doors closing. Listen and you'll know that some things are constant and others redeemable.

The books are wrong, you know,
and the priests—they're told only

what to tell the children. Look both
ways, don't shit where you eat, that

sort of thing. And the children listen.
And I listen. And the priests, they

listen most, their clean heads lowered
in great psalms of listening.

But heaven is a highway in Kansas.
Nothing waits: no commandments

or pearly gates; not a mighty gavel
but merely gravel, mile after loose

mile of it, no other soul in sight.
The geometry of the afterlife: four

corners, a stop sign. The paint on
the sign reflective, easy to read.

The thousand ears of God are ears
of corn, and none of them listen to

the only sound, which is your engine,
your one horse always approaching.

The life you're leading, being led.

Beating Balaam's Ass by Timothy Green


Thank you. & Please, please stay.

i was surfing WAC when i saw a link to this place in the comments. i think its a brilliant idea to do this with the supernatural fandom, and this (first) prompt is absolutely lovely. i hope this catches on.

I'm really glad you like the idea & the prompt.♥ I'm trying to think of ways to get this place out there but really I don't mind how many people know about this place as long as someone's getting something out of it. (:
