How sad the world is,
yet so absurd.
when the pretty ones lay their burdens down….
inquiry for today~ full moon calls you out to pray…..
I will become the madman running to see the moon in the window,
the hawk I saw tracing the cliff edge above the river.
I will be the man I have pursued all along and finally caught.
I will be all my intuitions and all my desires
and then I will walk slowly down the steps as if dressed in white
and wade into the water for a second baptism.
I will be like someone who cannot hide their love
but my joy will become ordinary and everyday and like a lover
I will find out exactly what it is like to be the happiest,
the only one in creation to really understand how much,
I’m just a hair’s breadth from dying.
