Old Grudges

The gods gone out of worship
but their punishments remain.
All curses. No blessings.
Prometheus’ liver still growing, still being
ripped by beak and talon,
still growing, still being
ripped by beak and talon,
regardless of whether we see
or believe;
as immutable as gravity,
as measurable as heat,
still growing,
still growing.
