Jupiter

Jovial Jupiter
Chieftain God
swirling with storms
of laughter
red with rage
white with weightless mirth
a roaring lion
chubby, chuckling Buddha
the Alpha, Father
Gatherer of moons

who is man
in His shadow?
us, only dust
indignant before
the fierce contradictions
of the great unknown–
for try as you may
you cannot squeeze
the boundless King of kings
into your tiny little box
