In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
It all comes back to poetry
Even, maybe especially, the explanations
Not just those of the theologians
But the physicists, too, and the astronomers
Even historians, the best ones, anyway
Will tell you that in the last analysis
Reality can’t be quantified.
And their words and their equations
Are only analogies, only metaphors
And finally inaccurate and incomplete.
In the beginning was the word.
This is mystery.
