Bidding Adieu —(Listen)


gimme a new piece of the big Mysterium
—the words had barely fallen from his lips
when he almost died again in word delirium
choking on the language of things

…………. clue

science is a big imperium, religion is too;
of the two one does not give way to
what the other calls G-O-D
for having offered to all: experience,
and the capacity to grump or mull—
to cogitate and name what is, what’s not,
what will be and what (as we speak)
is bidding adieu. the other (I’m serious)
claims only its words are true
