the congregation gathered
watching,
praying 
devout followers
of the masked god


the reveal, an omen
discouraged and encouraged
curiosity prevailed


the porcelain mask
crumbled
slowly,
piece by piece
spiraling into the ether
revealing the almighty

god

the parishioners gasped
staring into the darkness,
the void
emptiness

unmasked:
 the
first god

and
the last

Chaos


with their
final words
the believers
wrote:

"chaos wears
a mask to be seen
without a mask
chaos swallows
everything

do not unmask 
your gods"
