Before Bed


My logic tells me you’re not there;

Faith tells me you are; Far

Beyond the mind behind and intellect,

Reached only by that pair: the paradox.

The rest is tedium,

A medium of bubbles, changes,


History repeating the illusions

Grand and small:  It all.

There is, can be no crucial

Thing to justify a clinging to,

It being all

A movie reel.

To seal the role

And steal the whole of you,

The prayer,

A substance light as air,

The core is nothing more

Than faith –

To act on, live off,

Work out, work off:

Nothing more.
