Almighty Held Back – a poem

Even the makings of the almighty

Bow down to the manmade compounds

Which promise the death of pain

Yet deliver oft surcease transient.

*

How long can such things manage

To results deliver? Against

The order of divinity made

Flesh, the paradox of unmaking.

*

What is made by creation can

Rarer reduce what afflicts us

When we struggle with spectres,

Shadows of ourselves on old walls.
