Sometimes Some Gods


Sometimes some gods emerge
into the morning with their
untoward limbs extended toward
the unexampled application
of the unexampled urge to think up

and to sing new hymns – to which
they hope to lend some unexpected
sense of a nobility that hasn’t
anything to do with them: in fact,
portends quite something other than

their own divine egocentricity –
in fine, sometimes some gods
experience humility! How oddly
ominous! We doubt that that will
ever happen, though, to us.
