Holding god (poem) 

Holding god

Man can embody truth
but never know it.
W. B. Yeats

Everyone knows
that you can't hold god
in your arms,
give it a name.

some keep on trying
for containment,
with their telescopes
and measuring rods.

Some declare
that if you can't put it
on a scale,
or if it doesn't, like
a snail,
leave a track
of where it goes,
it doesn't exist.

That way,
they are safe.

That way,
they don’t have to know.
