SIXTEEN OCCASIONAL POEMS
6 – POSTMODERNISM
Poem: Alasdair Gray © 2005
In the beginning the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
All things were made my him.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men
and the light shone in darkness;
and the darkness partly understood,
and lectured on it.
Light died before the uncreating word.
Now darkness lectures to darkness on darkness
the darkness sees it is good.
