54. I am an idiot

I know I am an idiot true.

In the growing clouds my hopeful feet,

Hands flung skywards for the blue stars.

My throes no sun, no moon, shall greet.


I had a dream, a real dream:

God would bury Himself to live

In human ignorance hungry and black,

To human death His Soul He’d give.
