Review of "These Hands, If Not Gods" by Natalie Diaz

"These Hands, If Not Gods" by Natalie Diaz was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 9, 2013.  The POV of the narrator in the poem seems to switch back and forth between the poet and God, which I find to be a bit confusing.  The reference to the "hundred-handed one[s]" from Greek mythology in the final line seems out of place.
