But the Gods are Ruined and the Prophets are Silent

now athens is crying out to
the heavens as fire takes
her skin by storm and alexandria
is bleeding out into the nile;
constantinople is lying on her side
ravaged and rome is pressing her
lips to the starless nights above,
praying to the shattered ruins of
olympus:
kyrie eleison,
christe eleison,
kyrie eleison.
