God as a Tiger in a Cage

God as a Tiger in a Cage
Jennifer Martelli

This tearing apart…the whole of creation is nothing but its vibration.
—Simone Weil

Perhaps I could sit outside the cage,
push food through the bars with a broomstick
sit hungry 1,000 years
until I was thin enough with devotion,
until I disappeared.

But just to bend forward for a closer look,
the air behind me vibrates.
If I could rip out my mind,
I would.
