Every paramount moment

Every paramount moment

You know what the mystics say -
don't look forward to anything

but who can live
hopelessly as that?

Who owns a bible
where the lists of begats

are as dear as the shalls
shot through the beatitudes?

Plowing the fields equal
to crucifixion and resurrection?

Every motion and emotion,
thought and word holy,

essential, singular,
irrevocable and worthless.

I mean, priceless, matchless,
every paramount moment

and the appreciation of it
the mystics tell us, is loving God.

O child, you must encounter
your father through the heart.
