Where

How many coffee cups without a reformation,

how many teas I’ve drained and was the same.

 

Where is the line?

Where is the line?

 

How many prayers alone in my underwear,

a stark disobedience captive in the dark of a room.

 

Where?

 

I am tired, my Lord,

not of knowing the line,

where is the call to grasp to sing,

to ring Thy magnificence out,

as do clouds, out of towels

like flocculent sponges.

 

O terrible poem!

beseech me otherwise.

 

The doorstep’s where I die, my love;

become a ghost; survive.
