sending an army
sending an army
of cold black clouds, demanding
my attention-
You remind me again
the frailty of man
[W]ho shut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
when I made clouds its garment
and thick darkness its swaddling band,
and prescribed limits for it
and set bars and doors,
and said, 'Thus far shall you come,
and no farther,
and here shall your proud wave
be stayed'?
Job 38:8-11
