VII Jesus Falls For The Second Time

Is it the world tips
or the pitch of liquid
in a dizzied ear?

The sickening spin
and the sudden
unavailability
of grip
conspire.

There must be tears
down here where the view
is sandal-straps
and calloused toes
and dog's paws and
tall, tall people
who rise above and seem complete.

God has crumpled
to a bag of stick limbs
and is empty as dust.
There must be tears down here.

This is a fall
that will shake the world.
