Sermon

Babel tongues babble,
Let me tell you of sin,
I will flay your soul with a kiss,
Scented candles flicker,
Silken scarves flutter,
They will strangle you,
It is their duty,
Victim & sacrifice;
Gentle flames beckon,
The scarves are impaled,
Burning delicately,
Ashes float hazily,
Dreaming of their God:
The Hiroshima Angel,
Voracious nemesis,
Singeing the sky,
Humans melted like marshmallows,
Bandages disintegrated,
Parched throats,
Cool water boiled,
Parchment skin,
Radioactive characters,
Stumbling ghosts,
Eclipsed by technology,
A fearsome fable.
