i cannot swear allegiance
to your god. if it is he
who is to be the face of the beloved
then i am truly lost –
but goddess help me
i have felt the ocean in my bones,
burned with the fire
of a thousand petty suns
longing for a god made manifest.
and i know my tears
are nothing to the rain
and these hills laid
themselves down
long before i ever did,
but sometimes the sky
is not enough
and the thunder that plays me
singing bowl to the river
is nothing
to the sound
of your voice.
