God gave Moses the rainbow sign, no more water, the fire next time!

Source: Epigraph, "The Fire Next Time"
He was black and the water was black.

He lifted himself by his hands on the rail, lifted himself as high as he could, and leaned far out. The wind tore at him, at his head and shoulders, while something in him screamed, Why? Why?..and then the wind took him, he felt himself going over, head down, the wind, the stars, the lights, the water all rolled together, all right. He felt a shoe fly off behind him, there was nothing around him, only the wind, all right you motherfucking Godalmighty bastard, I'm coming to you.
