A single Screw of Flesh

A single Screw of Flesh
Is all that pins the Soul
That stands for Deity, to Mine,
Upon my side the Veil

Once witnessed of the Gauze
Its name is put away
As far from mine, as if no plight
Had printed yesterday,

In tender solemn Alphabet,
My eyes just turned to see,
When it was smuggled by my sight
Into Eternity

More Hands to hold These are but Two
One more new-mailed Nerve
Just granted, for the Peril’s sake
Some striding Giant Love

So greater than the Gods can show,
They slink before the Clay,
That not for all their Heaven can boast
Will let its Keepsake go
