Cacophony

Genesis, Revised Edition

In the beginning
 there was a constant 
stream of noise, 

and then God 

sat down on a wooden stool,

 and like grandmother,
intent upon her business of 
snapping harvested beans 
for the canning jars, 

God broke that noise 

into discrete pieces 
called words,

knowing the Tower of Babel's
foundation had already 
been laid
 

that we might 
understand each other, 

and laugh, 

and love.
