Last Night You Said You Saw Divinity

Do you have some idea

of god? Not as concept,

as person, as being, but

a knowing like the taste

of sugared water, sweet, the time

you drank it

accidentally before the humming-

birds could reach it. Did you

have some idea of the divine?

As touch, as caress, as

the way that fingers run

down your spine made you

have visions. Did you have some

idea of faith? the kind which

comes as desire, as pang, as

the shock of electricity, the way

it thrummed just under

your skin like your blood

was fizzing. Did you have some idea

of how it could be lost? Like river

beds drying up and the eggs

laid by fishes split

open with the sun, cracking

into glistening dust.
