your enlightenment burns my head and itches
you zealous zealots,
I am an atheist when it comes to Pascal’s God
and I will not speak your
sacred-taught and perfectly logical language
Poem by Arturo Desimone, Netherlands October 2013
“The God of the damned cannot know the God of the damner, that is, cannot know he is God. As no Blues person can really believe emotionally in Pascal’s God, or Wittgenstein’s question, “Can the concept of God exist in a perfectly logical language?” Answer: “God don’t never change.” -Amiri Baraka, from the essay Expressive Language 1963 (see http://www.poetryfoundation.org/learning/poetics-essay/238686)
