forget
all that

just
for a moment

consider the nature
of a shrine

a location
for relics

sainted relics

but
what

belief . . .

the spirit . . .

what comprises
a relic

of worth

and
is it a thing
to be
worshipped

what spirit
remains
to receive
such obeisance
in a scatter
of white ribs
that were
once


leviathan
