When I am dead and gone
they will say of me,
“We never could figure out
what he was talking about,
but it was clear that he
understood very well
that modernism is a branch
that was cut off decades ago.”
A man and a woman.
Guess who they are.
Mutt and Jeff
who used to look so good
in the comics.
I especially liked their moustaches.
And the sense in it
that God is watching
from some untelevised height,
and sometimes
throws himself on the ground.
There is a tremendous impact,
for the molecules of God
are just tremendous.
