The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Enough spirit at
The center of solitude-
Bearing on the eye,
This is not love.
It is faltering-
The faltering of the
Earth's re-birth-
It mimics itself...
The sun mimics childhood play-
It mimics life as it had been
Before we first saw
The harshness of day.
Parody- parody of creation-
Articulation of the terror of
It's not enough for all to shine.
It is not enough that
The sky radiates
Gloriously through
The canopies of creeks.
It is not enough that
Two lovers hold hands
And devour each other
With a gaze.
This scene has been immolated
With obsidian eyes-
The chirping of birds mutilated
Into murmuring cries
Of abandonment, suffocation,
And disregard:
Spring cut open, emaciated,
And brutally scarred.
