religion

the falling

 

they say there’s

 

an angel in

 

side of us all

 

but i say

 

unto you there’s

 

two

 

and while the one rises

 

the other must fall

 

they arise together

 

and neither could the one

 

ex ist with out

 

the other

 

 

 

this is a

 

truth so confounding

 

God herself

 

became flesh just

 

to ex-press it

 

though the light shines

 

in the darkness it is not

 

overcome

 

nor is it

 

com-prehended

 

 

 

were we to listen

 

to the better angels of our

 

nature

 

they would

 

inevitably

 

redeem us

 

from this un-whole-y

 

communion

 

such creatures as we are

 

mixture of piss and

 

shit and light

 

must not the stillness

 

within

 

ascend to the heavens

 

just to

 

comprehend it
