Clear and Loud

Soul without thinking
soul in the funk
soulfully the body and the mind
come together behind knit brow
to make soul of I and thou.

God in the dictionary
god in heaven
god in fiction and non-fiction
god in the moo and meow
but no god here and now.

Devil rising up slowly
devil in the details
devil dressed in holy robes
we said he’s not allowed but
he shows up anyhow.

Everything turned away
keeps crossing the path
everything wanted and spurned
all sacredness disavowed
comes through clear and loud.
