Men's daily lives will be
the living precept (You promise).
The words I have not spoken
will come to life in them.
Meanwhile ... I study body languages
in myself and other lovers
of Your seven bodies, searching,
inside and out, for the birth of words
for years unspoken -- yet, shaped
a lifetime on earth, on earth,
o Emmanuel, Emmanuel.
Await the living, breathing words
among us, precepts sown by silence --
evidential change, redemption, salvation.
Your only miracle, You said --
to change the human heart.
Scholars scour the words You left behind.
I search for the words You left unsaid,
in myself and others -- to become the words,
to become the words You left unsaid.
O child of God, let it be, let it happen. Let it be,
leave it alone. Undisturbed ... undisturbed.
