Satan Has Hollowed the World

sciencesource_ss2413465

Soldiers patrol Bethlehem now.

 

The Kaaba hosts no

circumambulating mustati.

 

The Ganges’ bathes

in its own sin and ash

releasing no Moksha.

 

The Vatican quarantines

even  its Cardinals as

The Pope holds mass

to an empty St. Peter’s Square.

 

In Chicago, a 7-year-old girl named Heaven,

will not die today, not become

the most expensive candy in the world,

as her mother watches her, the miracle of today,

walk all alone by herself to a closed sweet shop.
