Lamb Language

God arrived in a fit.

Gave the saints visions which left them

Puzzled for days. Their feet hesitated

As they walked. Spooked. As if someone pressed

Pause to see if they would notice. 

What is the word for this. 

What language.  

One day a lamb appeared

On Ida’s shoulder. Bleating. Flashed on

& off like a torch. When the lamb 

Flicked on: they paused & the lamb fed

From Ida’s newly sweetened mouth. 

When the lamb flicked off. Ida made lists. 

Of ingredients. Pleasure. Lamb language.
