What is the greater miracle—

That all of this is the result

Of some inscrutable plan of Divine origin,

Especially devised

To include AIDS

And autism,

With everyone coming in on cue

And exiting on schedule,

And catching the pass that wins the game,

Or dropping it,

According to God’s All-Knowing Will,

Between the coming and the going,

Of all those generations upon the earth—

Or, that none of it is?
