Give Me More Light
 
 
Give me more light
I’m getting desperate here, you know
show me what you’ve got
is Ann Landers still around?
read my palm
let a theosophist tell me my aura
help me recall my parents’ bromides
find me an intelligent Creationist
a lawyer good at loopholes.
 
Show me no scientist’s dead-end truths
Prove instead why hearts are more than brains
why Fatima calloused knees conquer computers.
 
Or show me skyward something beyond astronomy
show me a god whose gestures don’t seem random.
 
Show me one way to turn
To find a convincing lie.

(2012)
