Issue 8 – Goad

Mark Goad

The Evolution of Worlds

Have pity on God’s long longing. If only God could find us

hidden so carefully in the universe like a needle in a haystack of infinities.
It won’t be found. Poor God, looking everywhere
forever like an old woman for a lost coin.

What joy, hers, when she finds what was lost!
Her laughter will shake the stars,
new worlds in echo arise.
