Feast

Transitions
And societal
Disintegrations
The ripping out
Of paradigms
And the dying
Consciousness of God
Theological Consumerism
Run amok
And sacred canopies
Of meaning
Obliterated
Disembodied
And decontextualized
With old
Hegelian wounds
Fragmenting
And disruptive
Devouring me
In my pieces
Without remorse
