The Ancient Modern

Mortal  /  Joshua Alan Sturgill

Time the infinite 
fracturing &

Space the endless 
dissipation

           of Eternity— 

the distortion
wrought by Death

on the Image of God.
Time & Space

           are Adam

broken, darkened &
dissolved.  All

we know, we know
only from within

          a septic wound

    1. The wound is the Fall. All we know, could it be only a blood red, stinking stain? Goodness, I hope now.

      It was nice to meet you, Joshua, at the Inklings Festival this year.
