Sacrament
Look at the trees, I said!
Branches scraping
flakes of blue
from a loaf of sky!
 
Look at the trees, I said.
Their weathered skin
reaching ozone deities
before they die.
Look at the trees, I said!
Their ceaseless yearning
spreading leafless veins
in supplication.
Look at the trees, I said.
From where we stand
no closer to God
than yesterday.

Prophesy
 
I pushed my wanton self
from my mother,
and gaped blindly
at the black backness
of my squinting eyelids,
while flattening
my massive tongue
against the bottom
of my mouth;
all the more room with which
to scream

 
              Futility
Honestly,
I have seen
the birds and beasts
of the field together,
lain like
scattered cauldrons,
empty and pitiable,
making sounds
confounded, like
hollow bells;
cries of turbulence
and confusion.
I have no right
to perforate
the sandy soil
of this plain
with my claim.
I own no hand
of strength
to raise above
the cry of chaos
in this wasting wind,
nor force or will
to tip them all,
these empty scales.
I've passed this way
and left no token
behind me.
