11-20-12 after Eliot “it is you who must kneel . . . England, or nowhere”

You and the dark and the clock and your breath

Wishing your heart could open like a flower

And there, knowing you don’t know

Knowing you don’t know

If there is nothing to say or everything to pray

If all of the world’s burdens are worthwhile then

or if it is for you to listen

Have to admit you don’t know

Just like everything else, it’s about

getting over the initial struggle

getting mind to bend and heart to lean and fall

In the direction the wind blows that day

getting pride to become transparent

so it can be pushed aside and eventually disappear

getting to where the moment

you and the dark and the clock and your breath

Is imbued with the presence your heart thirsts for

Where it means what they were all meant to mean

In the first place.
