Just say "No!" to oversimplification!

A Diagnosis

We trust in oracles of stone,
in names of air, electrical
abundances of nothing

yet faith eludes us; hope
remains a treacherous
enticement to futility
and vain regrets. Faith

I tell you truly
is different -- That lost sense
disparaged and counterfeited; credulity
usurps its place, sets us to building
houses of despair, where faith
would break the eggshell prison
from inside, and free us all.

A Theological Poem

What did I gain, to find my soul
within a perfect dying world?--
With God (my only hands)
immobilized by wisdom

everything
and nothing
remains undone. Violence rules
peacefully over
poisoned earth and yet

I know
where Life is from

and trust the Power that dreams me
will not harm, nor be harmed
no matter what happens
no matter what happens.
