On a Rock Beside the Sea Today

On a rock beside the sea today
I discovered god’s corpse
ashen-grey and silent 
as the sun’s descent through cloud
I claimed
a feather from its hair
and a shell
from amidst the ruin
and in return
for these gifts
I gathered
the seaweed from its face
that it eyes might
reflect once more
the ocean’s blue
seen green
as sunlight through a wave
before the birds devour all softness
and the last beauty of the divine
is lost to the earth
