Kierkegaard

The leap has stalled.
The chapel now
a cultural centre,
hipster-staffed and closed.
The streets are drab,
the women hijab-clad,
ignorant of the one who lies within.
Leaf-strewn claggy soil
holds him coldly –
a secular embrace
stifles passionate call
to leap into the unknown.
The unknowing leapers now
strafe cafés and bat mitzvahs.
And we don’t understand.

Rupert Moreton
