God—An Apology


when I speak
you understand the language
of my language
even the language
of its body

when I don’t pray
you hear my silence

when you are not
you are

and when you are
it isn’t you

when I ask you
about that Darfur woman
her belly slit by the soldiers
her fetus thrown to the dogs, alive

you say
I am that woman

Joanna Kurowska’s slender verses pray by playing and masterfully lead the reader to the realization that “knowing is letting go”.
