POETRY: Eleven Addresses To The Lord — 7 by John Berryman

Eleven Addresses To The Lord — 7 by John Berryman

After a Stoic, a Peripatetic, a Pythagorean,
Justin Martyr studied the words of the Savior,
finding them short, precise, terrible & full of refreshment.
I am tickled to learn this.

Let one day desolate Sherry, fair, thin, tall,
at 29 today her life the Sahara Desert,
who never has once enjoyed a significant relation,
so find His lightning words.
