Dio Chrysostum

Dio Chrysostum                                                                                       

Tired of manipulating the figures so it all adds up
for myself and like-minded seekers to satisfy

our craving for the orderly and coherent.
A comprehended God, rightly pointed out

Dio Chrysostum, is no God, just as numerals
might or might not suggest real quantities. 

One apple or a dozen, genuine or imagined,
there’s nothing much on paper

in which to sink our teeth; juggling empty conceits  
and fear for our sanity should all those apples rain down

though at some point that must be
exactly what we need.

O child of God, if it makes sense
it must surely not be true.
