Forsaken and lost

"You tremble, carcass? You would tremble
even more if you knew where I am going to
take you!" Vicomte de Turenne


from the tree
of life we
gorge in greed
on the fruit
of knowledge

all the apples
have been made
holy...sacred

but hidden
beneath the belly
of the snake
lurk the gods
licking at the lies
they sold us
