God at the Root of Things

floating in a swirl of oil
in a storm sewer. Humming

in the dynamos at Bonneville Dam
and the wings of a tiny bird.

Vast; containing galaxies,
speck in the eye of a nematode.

Jade and polisher of jade
water and drinker of wine

blood and bleeder and mosquito
and yellow fever virus--

reflected in the eye of the worm
curled silent in a beetle's egg
God at the root of things.
