Black Dogs Guard The Gods

Defending you, though it doesn’t feel like it;
about endogenous depression

T
here are
somnolent servants of God,
 
deciding which side
of narrow tracks
transgressing minds will lie.
 
Asleep for some,
for reasons the Almighty known,
their dreams echoing sufferers on
remote hikes
through private landscapes.
 
Awake for most,
they serve their Mistress well,
pouncing like falling Winter fog,
to prevent
divine revelation.
 
For, without their blunt encumbrance,
the most depression-prone would
venture off like geniuses,
 
separate without trace from
the first stride.

by the way it’s the descriptive title that made me ask, black dogs, only the orthodox priests are dressed in black.
