Act As If

         Act As If

Act as if your love

Has gone,

As if you live


And have to sort out bills

And fix the house,

Buy food,

Keep beauty ordered

Giving cat and bird

The care they’re used to,

Keeping fire, chopping wood…

Think it through

As though

You are the sole support –

(Not counting God and thought.)

A revelation in itself.

All its own,

You alone -to do alone

What two could do before.


Act As If 3.8.2016 (revised from 3.29.2012)
