Adam with his arm outstretched toward God
and his congregation of angels. The striations in
their muscles proclaim their yearning to touch;
but Adam’s lax wrist fell short of God’s hand--
man’s lack of faith keeps him apart from God.
Michelangelo was twenty-five when he painted Vatican City.
No one else worthy enough to be harnessed beside him, holding a brush.
