Poetic Responses to Psalms and Scripture


He stooped down to me;

he heard my cry.

                    Ps. 40:1

Infinite ear,

labrynthian—

the path

 

my breath seizes,

the One

which surrounds

 

everything!

I reach to cry

near your face.

 

And who am I?

All mouth.

Need and echo of a world

groaning.

 

You listen.

How kind.
