Poem | Jody's Notes

 

          This is how it must be seen: As a whole,

a season intrinsically gestalt:

four-dimensional in impact.

It is hard to remember this

as the bleeding now rushes by, as we total

momentary loss in backward glancings.

            It is a diffuse God we live within

not to an afterlife, but in every present

there and then always.
