Razing Babel: A Pentecost Poem

There is a unity of men which is not of God
When tongues univocally intone disharmony
When a shared voice is in concert with evil
When men build on earth a mockery of heaven.
But there is a Spirit who hovers o’er every tongue
Building a city of words whose tower is a cross
Scattering discord by the utterance of a name
That razes Babel hearts in a violent wind of grace.
