of all things God made with his hands
he combined alphabets for it.
of all the things that look so hard
is the wedding of all letters.
the hardest part of the picture
is brick-fisted belligerence,
a piper’s dream and broken flutes,
avocation of missing time,
sour word salad on neck-tie tongues,
no rosary or satire
can summon lightning to strike you
hence! EKG line will stay flat
until a different god comes.
