The Situation 12


we’re none of us greeks we’re none of us cypriots

I’ve passed greek churches but that doesn’t

make me equally responsible it’s their fault

for loving olives more than frugalness it’s

my fault for never praying even when I wake

with the intention of praying I can’t

make myself kneel if there was someone

singing psalms I’d be on my knees but

there’s not there’s only a blackhole

we’re faith is and I’ve never had faith it’ll hold

I think it was star trek that taught me

about black holes you go through one

and there’s only time on the other side

lost time another time alternative time

I like that I like that the scientists are making

blackholes now I like that they don’t give

a damn about what a blackhole is I like

that they don’t think god might be in the blackholes

I like that even when I try I don’t sound like you
