God's Order

by Helen Losse

God’s Order
	—for Alton

On the day that you said,
I belong wherever I am,

basing your claim on
African logic, I
am because we are,
I vowed a solemn vow—

that starting that day
I, too, would gain
such singular confidence,

yet I misjudged how
global that task might become.

You, Alton, don’t haply know
God’s perfect order,

so I hope you’ll
admit you knew all along:  
Who drinks deep from the well
drinks deep from the well—

in the well that was made by
I AM.
