To All You Other Noahs



author’s note:

It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
             -- Bob Dylan


TO ALL YOU OTHER NOAHS

I am building an ark

my work guided
by a voice transcendent

asking me to believe
what I can't yet see

but I blindly obey because
as carpenters, we learn
disasters can happen when
we refuse to listen...

yeah
doubt often lowers me down

but I lift myself
with this perspective:

maybe I am
making a grand mistake...

but if so
it's wonderfully grand.
