denial of beauty…

denial of beauty

the old man
said
place your fears
upon
the altar’s fire
so
like
a lamb
we may
offer them up
to
the gods
as repentance
for
your self-doubt
doubt
that binds you
to
the words
of others
words
like sharp blades
that
carve
your name
upon
the wooden gravestone
of
fools
a marker
that
so
soon
rots away
leaving
your days
upon this earth
blended
into the earth’s darkness
to ner
be seen
again

  1. Ah! …do lambs give themselves up as an offer to the gods? …or is it foolish humans who believe that God is moved by blood sacrifices?!
