In Answer to Fundamentalism


Justice Putnam

It’s not right
To elevate Her
To the status of

Rational man
Would refute it.

A material world
Critical of
Class and place

Would find
That elevation
To be demeaning.

My Heart
Doesn’t beat
In a material world

I be nothing
More than
Flesh and

In a sky
Of light

A universe
Of gravity

A galaxy
Among the void
And plasma

And yet some
Would question
Whether another
Would doubt

The Power of
God’s hand?
