I whispered once in heaven’s ear. I told him in wouldn’t work, but did he listen? Did he hear? I whispered fire in the burning star and taught it to explode, but he made planets from the seeds exposed. I whispered dark volcanoes; he made plants to clear the air. I whispered shifting waters; he made fish and birds and mammals and made man.
I whispered once in the woman’s ear. She learned to disobey him. I rejoiced.
I whispered in the young man’s ear. He learned to kill his brother. I rejoiced.
I’m whispering in your ear too. Listen.
