Rae Armantrout: Advent

Advent

In front of the craft shop,
a small nativity,
mother, baby, sheep
made of white
and blue balloons.

        *

Sky
        god
                girl.

Pick out the one
that doesn’t belong.

          *

Some thing

close to nothing
                         flat
from which,

fatherless,
everything has come.

    –Rae Armantrout
