isn't this what you were looking for?

something about the holy ghost

like a phone call that says
“what do you hear?”
“nothing but the rain.”
or the way an out of tune radio can
sound an awful lot like the ocean and the wind and trees
or when you can’t tell if it’s a skateboard outside
or a jet engine overhead.

if we got rid of the ceilings and just strung blinking lights
which we talked about before,
they could breathe with us
would we sleep on our backs or stomachs.

other implications of divinity:
the sensation of a very hot shower
on a mosquito bite.

I liked "that could pulse with us" better. But I'm all for the 3rd stanza changes
