I cursed at god today
(My baby died today)
Who is too far away
To hear,
And maybe too much between us,
I fear.

The body cools and sets,
My faith evaporates
In anything beyond
The grave,
Or in any power I might
Have.

Something I love in me
That prays incessantly
For the reality
That brushes past
The body.

A god-shaped hole in me
(Dug one for my baby)
Fills me with longing
Like a bride;
Never more alive than
When inside.

So shall I fill the hole
With that which I control?
I'll move the Earth that
Welcomes you.
If only I could move the
Heavens, too!

And when time has displaced
The face from the deceased,
The presence of my grief
Will fade--

Little more than shadow in the
Shade.

Something I love in me
That prays incessantly
For the reality
That brushes past
The body.

I cursed at god today
(My baby died today)
Who is too far away
To hear, ...

(Or is he the fear
I'm feeling here?) [x3]
