After Daniel 8

An unveiling
a vision given
if not understood
a vision so terrible
I was struck dumb
and sick, appalled

ask for explanation
receive nothing but
go your own way
sealed unto the end

ask why, stunned
flattened into frightened
submission, hearing
only the silence
roaring in my ears:

you are an instrument
you are not a vessel
