Between - Poem by Morgan Michaels

Between ourselves and the Gods
there is a void
so wide, so drop-off deep-
mountains on mountain stacked
can't succeed to fill.

Between ourselves and the Truth
interposes
an obfuscating maze-
an all-but-endless hall
called the material.

Between ourselves and the poem
there is a page
so blank, so white so long
that glyph by glyph
we undertake to fill.

Labor, Art, Grace-
these are the corkscrews given
all men by Dominion
to pick and plunder these
august mysteries.
