I Cannot Stop the World

a strawberry
on the last day

I hope to believe
in other things about God

because the Temple’s sharp
eye had a sudden appearance

What is the cause?
I have no answer

Tonight I’ll give my eye
to the Temple

when the angels descend
from heaven

In this blindness
I can rest the world
