WHAT GOD SAID TO ME – a poem by Rupert Loydell


Echo and bulk and warp and flood,
ways to navigate the city, ways
to think and push over the edge.

Theology demands questions
and answers in equal measures,
ideas which make no sense.

Cloud hands, rain and fallen leaves.
Suck on light, explain it all to me;
come along and say you will.
