Silent Agony or Pleasure

When you ask either, or;
good, bad, etc.; you've found
that thread that the Western Mind
worships: sin sin, ye evil Doers

we are cursed by apples and temptation
so revel and then shame, bevel your fame
make do with the magic of possible forever
bearing the boulder burden of a bite-filled life

hyphenate your name with Mephistopheles 
to understand how you would live a dream
that must bring pain and sorrow awful 
to all those who are nearby, as saints are myths

and devils hyperboles, whether you went to
hear the sermon or you're a Sunday Heathen 
in the street, working playing hedonic tread
for the Biblical Nature abhors aberration 

and in a universe of distinctions
all is abhorrent.
