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.
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.
