12 Hrs 12th Chapter

12 hours to Rochester, on a snow two-lane highway.
The women with the star crown, great with child
is chased into the night by the Red Dragon.
The Red Dragon after the child, and after me,
in this cold in my heart I try to fight,
try to burn away with her a cherished one’s devotions.
The woman with the stars, great with child, has a place
made for her in the wilderness.
My cherished one waits to take me in.
12 hrs just begun, the woman with the stars runs
and I run like her into the night, into the wilderness,
to make it to the santuary, the safe place of love.
