A TEXAN EXPLAINS THE HOLY NAME

perugino-5

The holy name can not be spoken.
It disappears from the mouth
and takes form in the space between syllables
where silence widens, becoming a sky
unto itself.

In that sky
a name too formal to be used is forgotten.
Why call someone who is always here?

Does the husband call his wife to the bridal bed
when she is already there waiting?
When the wife’s mouth is on his
does he stop to ask for a glass of water?
