science and faith This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

you place your lot with the
all-knowing.
you think it will save you.

i prefer to know.
i’ve spent too much time
placing my fate in the hands of beings more powerful that a little girl.

now i like to handle my own matters.
with facts proved by cold, impersonal science.

you laugh, and tell me that that is a very cold, impersonal way to live.

i tell you that it’s practical.

you leave,
to chase your god to his forsaken land.
you leave to spread your message.

i stay.
i learn my facts, memorize my
science.

you die.

i buy a rosary.
