From quilting (1991), "whispered to lucifer" Summary

As Lucifer falls from heaven, those left behind "whisper" some messages to him, some questions, trying somehow to understand how he fell. He is called "six-finger," based evidently on the biblical reference to giants in the land who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. The speaker/s in the poem ask Lucifer what makes him leave. They wonder if it was the woman who enticed him, since he wanted to lie near her, to caress her, to love her. They say that he fell "laughing," his "grace all ashard." He has left everyone in darkness, in evening, still doing God's business, but without the confidence they once had.
