God Strikes a Match

God strikes a match
The airlines of a continent wimper and stall
3,000,000 are touched in the blink of His eye
The inconsequential God who no one knows.


My thanks to Keith Jenkins for a wonderful breakfast where he sparked the phrase: 'God strikes a match'

Good Kitty Day

No burr in her fur
Good kitty day.

Good Paper

If it is true Harvard will welcome my papers
I repent of any more poems being written upon cheap paper
Suspect Mother must be rejoicing that at last I am in
Despite the small matter of death’s admission
This venerable institution which she said she would scrub floors
To see me through, which I suspect was a lie
That a lot of love and luck and therapy has helped me see
Berkeley’s environment not being too shabby a place
For one with a great hunger to learn
Presbyterian mother and Catholic father not understanding the achievement
Until he was dead and she living with the retired of Cornell
At last she understood Berkeley was Harvard with better sun.

Goodness

Of all the goodness that has touched my days
Very little of its form has stayed
But some trace of its residual within my soul
Defies this process of my growing old
And when my body can not push the ink you read
When my greed is eternally still
Goodness at least attempted here
Will in the madness of our sphere
Tinkle a lttle in the daily wind
As if its form had stayed.
 
Bill Grace
