oh love I cannot take you

from the carnage of our lives

I stayed with you

thinking in love we're work out everything

but didn't realize this rude suffering

was the working out

there's nothing to save us but our love

and even that's a paltry thing in the great Cosmic Eye...

or not... I don't know but I do know

nothing matters...not even that merciless Perfection...

except the love we so bitterly share

in raging anger or soft truce of memory

remembering why we are together

and how that surpasses everything but the alleged Love of God...

how simply to make the One put its spiritual money

where Its yawning mouth is

either we hate and die of that hate

or we love and live that love

well Lord of Lord which shall it be?

our eternal deaths for not being perfect enough for You

or our eternal life because we love

and live beyond the cruelty of Your vengeance?

which shall it be?
