“Remnant Torn from the Sky” by Stefan Fiedorowicz

there’s a rip in the sky
where the atheist blade
found its flourish
psalms emptied of song
colors drained from the eyes
sun and moon leaking light
cast the world in dim
monochrome days and nights
turned a perpetual dusk
leaving life in gray shadows
where poets can barely breathe
thin lusty liquids while
groping their secular sonnets
no praise for the discarded soul
fleeing out through the rent
among scared keening streams
of pale bluebirds and doves
seeking love or a smile
despite angel wings cropped
frantic finding themselves
lost and trapped in the space
on the backside of faith
mourning men who deliberately
choose incompletion
of rational limits
to self-contained bliss
and the easy rewards dealt
by science of dull disbelief
