God the omnipotent is stammering
To 15 spent martyrs
In pill-trolley queasy clutches
– ward Hustle Wings, Loose Tile Hospital.
A Frightened Light
Is a misfit
In this sombre-smudged sphere.
His run-the-teeth purr
Is a splash (Joseph’s-coat glitter).
Like Memorex co-eternal, rewound.
Wimple-tressed Graces shatter-off
(ghost-rheum on a projector)
even the yucca
is mouse-trapped in His machine.
