Michael Meyerhofer The 2River View, 6.2 (Winter 2002)

Searching for God’s Vagina

Thinking that souls must be shaped
like hands, I have gone looking for yours,
the way it was
and though it hurts you,

you have called me in, swallowing me
inch by inch

until I have reached
the curtain between oceans

and in trying to push through,
I have always felt you there
on the other side, pushing back.
