c l i n a m e n

no room of words
holds so strong bonds
to stop old holy songs slow growth

o LORD show no shallow cracks
no not gods hollow call
break the stone in half or not at all


a n t o n y m i c t r a n s l a t i o n

and sat still at table
or stood moving away chairs
before the clap of bibles follows you home
leaving a trail of hallelujahs
(you sat) i stood;
arriving at the root of mumbled thanks
after a stamp from the library led me away
