Aces & Spades
Salvation Mountain
The Salton Riviera’s gone
and in its place, Armageddon—
where dreamers in their sinking ships
collide with the Apocalypse.
Inland, down the road a piece,
salvation spreads out at your feet—
a mountain as if from above
where it is written: God is Love.
Painted adobe sets the scene
up from the Sea of Galilee
past prayers and scriptures bountiful
to the cross that’s crowning all.
In the eyes of Leonard Knight,
what is simple is what’s right.
The sea may be a dirty trick,
but nothing God or Mammon can’t fix.
