nature and grace

What a many bungled mess of leaves and drawers

and the slamming of doors and

the feathers which would seem to defy gravity

were it not for Newton

but rather the scholastic order

Faith and Reason

once friends but now something has come between them

and no one believes they can even

stand the sight of one another

and the gossipy old hens

clucking about the academy

keeping score and choosing sides

but at the edge of the playground

looking at his shoes

the boy no one thought to pick (even last!)

the boy Truth.
