In the beginning god created the heavens and the earth...

Fuck that, you said.
In the beginning there was nothing
and from nothing, an explosion and time.
Green things, insects.

Yes, two by two, right?

Jesus fucking Christ no!
All unique and amazing
all a slow pattern of motion
creeping forward, in hazy spirals.
Here, give me that,
you don't know what you're doing.

And what about the end, I said.
Reckoning?  Resurrection?

Global warming will cause oceans
to rise.
Catastrophic climate change.
We will wipe ourselves out.
The world will continue on
until one day it will be sucked into the sun.

But it ends?

Not really, you said.

Fuck.  For a moment, I thought we were getting somewhere.

We are, you said and wiped our eyes respectively. 
It's just not where we thought we'd be.
