God is that from which can't be
Stolen, that which can't be offended,
Giver, always giving, change,
The unfathomable tunesmith of nothing,
Liberally bestowing grace notes
Of delight and disappointment.
The gutter projecting over the lawn
From a roof that had no gutter drips
Away from the house, digging a new
Trench where we did not want
Erosion. A bird erodes under
The window against the reflection
Of which, full of sky, it died.
Laughter belongs to the nearby
Restaurant where the sodden
Climbers come to wet their beaks.
Waterfalls festoon the peaks
Waterfalls carve away. You see
What this means? No want
Matters as much as too much.
Change partners when we dance.
