Of a most stormy life—was drawn

Guess who they are.

who used to look so good
in the comics.
I especially liked their moustaches.
And the sense in it
that God is watching
from some untelevised height,
and sometimes
throws himself on the ground.
There is a tremendous impact,
for the molecules of God
are just tremendous.
