the miracle

Though not
by any stretch
or leap
a “by the book”
Orthodox
Christian
(if anything,
a “beside the book”
semi-literary
heathen),
on their two main points
of
Christmas
incarnational
theology,
I am basically in complete
fundamental
agreement.

The first
is that the miracle
has already
happened.

I mean,
on Mars
they’re looking
intently
at rocks.
Rocks!
Nothing
wrong
with rocks.
But here on earth,
well –
need I go on.

And then the second
theological postulate
of Christmas,
and also
the days to come,
is that the miracle
is happening
now
and
is about to happen
finally
and very soon,
winging its way
here
like a thief
in the night,
or like the
indeterminate
and unmistakable
condensation
of air
into
a snowflake,
a protostar,
or a word of some kind.
