Theology


Green cloudscp.jpg

Theology is our attempt
to punctuate Mystery

an analysis of the handwriting
of the Beloved’s letter

a drawing
of the back side of light as it receds

Of course there is no such thing
We make it up

and spend the rest of our lives
following an imaginary map

Nevertheless we’re all walking around
with light shining in our eyes

         •

Every once in a while you just close them
and smile
