Fragment of faith

1-abstract_mandala
“the opposite of sin is not virtue but faith” (Kierkegaard)

Sin is so passé
a speck in the eye
irrigated by self interest
we should blame ourselves
wriggling off the hook
with priestly panaceas
burdensome are mea culpas
imagine instead a cloud of irksome flies
fragments of faith
haloing our heads across green pastures
