He can be terrifying, and hilarious all in one poem.
| On Resurrection Day your body testifies against you. |
Your hand says, "I stole money."
Your lips, "I said meanness."
Your feet, "I went where I shouldn't."
Your genitals, "Me too."
| Little by little, wean yourself. |
This is the gist of what I have to say.
From an embryo, whose nourishment comes in the blood,
move to an infant drinking milk,
to a child on solid food,
to a searcher after wisdom,
to a hunter of more invisible game.
| Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, |
not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, zen.
