Darkness of Michigan

Rain slashes, taps, drenches
released from the sky
O dark darkness of Michigan

I am for you, says the Lord

I am for you, says the Lord
I am the verdant path through desolation
I am the great release
I am the everlasting Yes:
When you join my Yes, you join all these things;
when you have the courage to die – and do –
you will live in my love, and live, and live

The nature of holes

The more the holes, the slower the pace
because you have to walk around
because you keep falling in
