Abstract

OUR FATHER / A hand, or the shadow of a hand, passes over. The wind, you'd think, or the way some sad, benevolent god might stroke the hovering raven, of all creation his favorite jewel. So now the hollyhocks shake their hankies and the dog looks up, abased by domestication, while the minions of aridity suffer their thorns and scales, singing world without love, amen. You'd think the raven's rosiny squawk was complaint, an oiled curmudgeonly beU. You'd think a decent god would allow a man to love another man. You'd think there was no place like hell but earth, awash in its armies so much as dollars and death, the economies and damned to believe in nothing one who tries and tries to pray. of raven and of man--one who flies, 146 · The Missouri Review MOVIES / On the move again, the kidney stone, rough as a barnacle chiseled off a pier, brought me to my knees before the video store's cool return slot. I slid the cassette inside, waved to the frightened clerk, and saw how clearly the sun winked once from the dangling keys in his hand. My forehead made a smeared, translucent flower
