 Chicken and Egg

What comes first—

God or the desire

For something divine 

Feast or the hunger

Love or stark shivering alone 

The omnipotent father or the unbegotten son,

One of them saying

Let there be light,

The rest is darkness 

The other saying forgiveness,

He knows not what he does 

Just assigning names

To the timeless eternity

It’s a chicken and egg thing

The empty hole in our hearts

That gives us something to fill

This right now

(I had never noticed before)

Is the hinge 

Between the lover

And the loved 

This right here

Is the portal through 

Which god must pass

To get to the place where 

Even the gods are judged
