TRINITARIAN HUMANITY
(9/5/18)

they should
have stuck
to two

two
is a bit
harder
to nail
down

a bit
more
amorphous

a bit
more
plausibly
deniable

three
however
is fairly
definitive

in survival
training
they told us
to mark
our trails
with three
objects

equidistant
piles of rock
for instance

in a line
away
from our
departure
point

making us
easier
to track

nature
doesn't work
in threes

three
is a human
mark

they
just couldn't
leave
the Father

the Son

be

they
could only
see
a trinity

themselves
reflected
as scripture
