Sacrificial Valentine

Whatever their difficult circumstances
However agonizing or not the decision
We can admit the gods rejected us
Long before we stopped admitting
Them into polite discussion
In abandoning the cosmic
We fled to the infinitesimal
To find something not illusory
When only death can be real
In a world of bodies
Only here on earth
Can the great sacrifice
Be offered again can love
Be freely returned
