Poem by Linda Imbler
Fusions Grouped and Regrouped
Are evil or goodness exclusively
creations and purviews of mankind?
Are we only alchemical combinations,
that upon death,
seep back into the earth to be remixed?
A new blend?
Perhaps certain blends
do not mix well, and create evil,
while others are reaggregated to become
towers of goodness. Does this explain sin?
So, is a soul only
a theoretical possibility?
I’m afraid we still lack
that one chemical nutrient
that would give us the answer.
