Show me an angel without a face

I

If a mountain split in two

Down its middle

And no tunnels left

You would get the shape

Of a human being

 

That is the only difference keeping

a mountain a mountain

and this human something else

 

Two peaks

cannot be met

Up and down

one side at a time

The road between

over-shadowed in awe.

 

II

If a pyramid divided in two

Across its middle

And no lift left

You would get the shape

Of a human being

 

This is the only difference keeping

a pyramid a pyramid

and this human something else

 

Two volumes

cannot be compared

Side by side surfaces

told two faces at a time

The spacing not these

some thing never more.

 

 

III

If a tree parted in two

Severed whence it branches

And no articulation left

You would get the shape

Of a human being

 

This is the only difference keeping

a tree a tree

and this human something else

 

Two images

cannot be returned

One dies

the other does it again

Sprouting its vision roots

like never before.
