the gods iii by Donald Kuspit



there was nothing,

     and then the small something

that you gave unbidden,

               storming the silence

with your thunder

     until it rained wonder,

raising questions

               that encompassed the vastness.


undoing the blankness

                                    of the sky

with clouds of consciousness,

                                               you opened the way

beyond death,

                       my hymns burrowing

into the bosom

                        of your beyond,

huddling in the shroud

                                    of wisdom.
