.. from PROVENANCES AND PAROLES.. ‘Measuring Gravity With Grace’

 

This is not my life or destiny, I have
not been breathing my gratitude to become

Invisible among those who are themselves so
transparent that I can

See through to the other side where a figure
stands now proclaiming the virtue

Of his identity with solemn vows and meanings
whose significance escapes me even now

As I search no longer for the mystery
nor attempt to measure gravity with grace
