SIXTEEN OCCASIONAL POEMS

1990–2000

 

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

and the darkness sees it is good.
