The message is the medium

After Romans 1:18-32

It’s a list, a list of stains,
a list no given but originates
from within, when the word
is ignored, when the word
is mocked, when the word
is buried, and the god is
the self.
What a list:
dishonorable passions,
a debased mind,
covetousness, malice,
envy, murder, strife,
deceit, maliciousness,
gossip, slander, hate,
pride, boasting, disobedience,
foolishness, faithlessness,
heartlessness, ruthlessness,
welcoming evil as a friend,
throwing off the reins,
running free,
trampling one another.
