Four Poems of Madness Painted / Blind Faith / Job Back-Talking - Rose Knapp

 

Four Poems of Madness Painted


Blind Faith

Faith

I am

I am who?

I am who I…

I am who I am?

What’s the point of a tautology?

Logical consistency says nothing of true theology

Laws of identity proving the pathetically painfully obvious


Job Back-Talking

Know your place hungry Human, for I am The Creator of Heaven and Earth

For I created your puny universe, all universes, all possible universes

For I created your tiny galaxy, all possible galaxies

For I created your vast space, your spinning sun

I created your wobbly world, among others

Your forests, leviathans, deserts, oceans

Crops, Food, homes, even You

What more do You want?

Bow down to me now

One Word: Abuser

One only-

No
