seven times seven

By | 1 January 2004

angels are sealed by God

since things sealed up are concealed
that which casts a shadow
is distinguished from the shadow itself

angels are marked by the impress of God

enshrouded, shortened like time
drawn together into a brief compass
to navigate through the shallows and sandbanks of Syrtis.

angels are heavenly bodies

placed beyond doubt in order to prove testimony
the bodies of plants and of stars
confirm their mystical society

angels provide security from Satan

since things sealed up are concealed
they keep in silence their heavenly secret
bodies both of men and of animals
