From a slow and sudden God: 40 years of wonder.

the passive entertainment

of the bigness of our efforts

confuses even hopes

we once possessed.

a precisely timed maneuver

matches all the counter-punches

to proclaim we really are

what we professed.

there is no truth in fairy tales,

or so the experts say,

those who choose to forget

dreams of lesser men,

but here and there

a child will see a cloudless sky

above him and sing of days

when love will love again.
