Faith in the Juggernaut [Today's News Poem, October 9, 2010]

Faith in the Juggernaut [Today's News Poem, October 9, 2010]

What did we build? A titanium frame for our sky?
Ribbons of stone that we polished then trampled?
Temple we pushed on a gut-slickened path,
Boring through faithful: obsessed
Always with rescue?

Even the gold is prepared to subject to the bell.
Trees show devotion by shearing then bearing
Prayers on their corpses. The wheel must be red,
Lest it cease spinning and pause—
Motionless value.
