Poem – CLAIM FOR THE MEEK (By John Biscello)

CLAIM FOR THE MEEK (By John Biscello)


I do not want to see

the face of God.

I want to see her mask,


and for whom it cracked,

the causal history of lines and fissures;

want to trace,

with blind mute innocence,

the light quartered and drawn

in Braille, its grooves holding,

without strain or regret,

Mercy’s hidden inheritance.
