“Idiot Psalm 1”
O God Belovéd if obliquely so,
 dimly apprehended in the midst
 of this, the fraught obscuring fog
 of my insufficiently capacious ken,
 Ostensible Lover of our kind—while
 apparently aloof—allow
 that I might glimpse once more
 Your shadow in the land, avail
 for me, a second time, the sense
 of dire Presence in the pulsing
  hollow near the heart.
Once more, O Lord, from Your Enormity incline
 your Face to shine upon Your servant, shy
 of immolation, if You will.
