Nihilistic Crust

The stone truth that many believe they seek
Is not a ray of the delinquent sum;
Clawing, the whole reverberates-though bleak-
When God fails to define an outcome.
The souls of primates are at the mercy
of a defiling specter unforeseen;
Dropping wishes at the feet of Circe,
Mortality pledges to a pale queen.
