34. The Edge

3 October 2021, 14:59

Crouching on the very edge
I will say
That the Bible could be entirely
Made up
And when I die, I might become
Food for worms
And nothing more.

I do not believe this is true
Or at least
I have to hope with all my marrow
That it is not
For if I slipped off this edge
It would be
Into a dark and dreary chasm
Of uncertainty.

Hell, I am already uncertain
Of most things
Save for this—
     Verum esse ipsum factum
     What is true is what
     Is made
     We are real not because we
     Observe reality
     But because we, image-bearers
     Invent reality
     In great waves of poetry.
Between buildings
