Become undone

To find

The one

You may call God


Struck dumb

Be deaf

Be blind

Take all your limbs away

Your memories

Your hymns


Your dreams

Let go

And know

Of nothing

All the wisdom

You construe


Till you

Be naked and bereft

Are left

With IT

Jam For Tea


In a paper cup

I sailed across

A saw tooth sea to see

The sight of the almighty

Making jam for me

The God whipped up

A measuring cup

Of sugar from the sky

And placed it on a china plate

And gave to me to try

Too cold said I to mighty God

And nodding he agreed

He warmed it up with heated breath

He added fruit a bit of zest

And there was Jam for tea.
