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,
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.
