"Virtual Body of God" begins from a series of poems written as prayers to God in the form of contemporary advertising. The body of God has been dispersed into a thousand fragments that can be purchased on the market. Selling something beyond themselves that promises to comfort the soul, tampons, chewing gum, and detergent have become the new center of the universe. Searching for something sacred, the anguished individual can only find the banal-sublime products of mass culture.
