Wind Resigned

It came
that day
I never really wanted
You instead of me
Barefoot honest
Buddha Zeus and Jesus
I once thought you were them all
Unthreatened as the others were
of comingling
Chairman Maos little red book
Icarus with the phoenix rising
and St. Augustines exhaustive works
On the same table
In the same life

Others drank Cabernets
while with you
I take to tea these days
and pray you don’t die

You were NEVER
to become Human
Yet now you’re no less
in my eyes Divine

We don’t cry now
but share firmament
Fat and rumpled
Wind resigned
