1608 BELIEF EMBATTLED

A mass of contradiction

not knowing faith from fiction

my unbelief staggers

convincingly

like a half-drunk falling his way home

 

Its past midnight

we have gone from dusk to doom

we haunt those greying temples

seeking an ancient wisdom

or maybe just a room

 

Unbelief turns

as even a worm will do

allowing belief to settle in

confident in its being

all-knowing in its logos

 

But even such belief

can be beggared

torn like a shroud

til only pathos remains

like ashes after the cremation

 

Namaste
