Empty Words

I don’t write of the 2000 Galaxies nor the Dark Matter that is six times the visible cosmos, nor the way that Dark Energy can be ‘seen’ by its gigantic shadows; I was too dim for that elite band. I write of the scholars bloated by words so they see neither the visible images nor the beauty of mystic religion’s poetry, so their only wares are empty words that are the narcotic of the slumbering congregations hummed asleep on Sunday mornings.
