Against the "God-Talkers"

They talk
And talk
And talk:
Asserting their certainties.
Affirming their formulae.
Arguing their auguries.

Let them.
Let them
    and talk

        and talk

           and talk.

Let them affirm.
Let them assert.
Let them argue.

I will be silent.
I will hold my peace.
I will keep my counsel.
I will remain absolutely aloof.

They learn to listen.
