Sealed with Bright Runes

I know a charm:
it will save me if Malice
cuts dark runes on a sapling’s roots
with intent to harm;
it turns the spell;
the hater is harmed, not me.
Ponderous with plots,
the Wobble-Troll defeats
herself into nowhere: airless Niflheim.
Bright runes I know
which trolls know not,
nor might trolls ever mount to mind.

The Imminent End of Days

Dear Composers & Responders,

Angels flitting about in the rafters? Strange shafts of light, with pointing fingers on the end, piercing through the clouds? Seven-headed beasts slouching through the flower-beds? Children speaking in tongues? No beer left in the fridge? It must be the… End of Days!!!

Coming VERY soon in a Shit Creek Review near you!

Yours Apocalyptically &c.,

Paulus Stevensis,

End of Days Scribe

Shit Creek Apocalypse Now

The End of Days approaches and the shit is really starting to hit the fan now, as submissions open for the Apocalyptic 15th issue of the Shit Creek Review. Prepare for that freakish Creekish Rapture by carefully studying the Signs revealed here:

Then follow those Revelations exactly.

It is written that submissions will close at midnight on October 2nd, or at the very moment when the world ends: whichever comes first. May the Creek be with you.
