first forgive the silence...

that answers prayer,
then forgive the prayer
       that stains the silence.
excuse the absence
       that feels like presence,
then excuse the feeling
       that insists on presence.
pardon the delay
       of revelation,
then ask pardon for revealing
       your impatience.
forgive god
       for being only a word,
then ask god to forgive
       the betrayal of language.

five psalms
