SIN NOMBRE
(11/21/14)


such
ineptitude
is so typically
human

attempting
to name that
beyond
our understanding

yet
we trot out
our ineffectual
terms

God

Life

Death

Infinity

Love

they create
these comfortable
little images
in our minds

just
a few letters
strung together
after all

visions
of comprehension
corrupting
the incomprehensible

let
these concepts
be

defining
them
diminishes
our appreciation
of them

they are
absolutely
beyond
our kin

accept them
instead
in wordlessness
and awe

point
and grunt
in wild eyed bewilderment
like the barely
educated apes
that we are

realize
the inherent
ignorance
of our condition
