water pistol

As I aimed and fired my newly acquired pistol
I felt and saw the water steam and broil

the vaporous mist
did swirl up and hiss
and our twinkling toes left the soil.

“meseemed a cloud enclosed us
lucid, dense,
solid, and smooth, like a diamond-stone
smote upon by the sun’s radiance.”

“And now I must go back:
See how the rays of light
through the thick smoke
grow brighter now?

The angel’s near
and I must leave
before he sees me.”
A cloud enclosed us.
- back –
down to the world
that we know

to buy things at your whim
leave knowledge of Angels
to those whom Angels know

And leave to yourself
earthly kind.
