by Gary Hardaway

God is physics and physics, God.
Perfected and indifferent,
His law cannot be broken,

just imperfectly understood.
His word is crystalline
and clear as void between the worlds,

beyond the finite pitch
of human ear or eye.
Our sin is but a word,

lower case, and never his concern.
His will is whole, inviolate,
and wholly full of possibility.

His is the infinite space
of possibility: cold or bright
as matters dark and light.

He is one.
His word and will are one.
And we are on our own.
