This poem makes an interesting theological point about to whom the Word is sent. The Word proceeds from innocence and the gratuitious heart of God, but is intended for the hybrid human/image of god that seems lost in a self-centered delusion that is fueled by fear or unworthiness and loss of control.
Denise's poem speaks to our unevolved state and keeps the mystery of how the Word will transform those to whom it is spoken.
