4. I Apologize
I apologize, most reverend theologians, for a tone not befitting
the purple of your robes.
I thrash in the bed of my style, searching for a comfortable position,
not too sanctimonious, not too mundane.
There must be a middle place between abstraction and childishness
where one can talk seriously about serious things.
Catholic dogmas are few inches too high; we stand on our toes
and for a moment it seems to us that we see.
Yet the mystery of the Holy Trinity, the mystery of Original Sin,
the mystery of the Redemption are well armored against reason.
Which tries in vain to get straight the story of God
before his creation of the world, when
the separation of good from evil occurred.
