EMPTY SOUL
(6/13/18)

God requires
space
within us
to perform
any earthly
miracle

so we must
discard
all of that
inapplicable
humanly sourced
knowledge

the religious
dogma

the memorized
tracts

the remembered
iconic images

then once
they
are gone

remove
ourselves
from the
equation

become
nothing
so that everything
will be ours

if we can
only relent
from hanging on
to every

last

vestige

of our
egomania

we know
that without
a doubt

or at least
with faith

that once
we turn
from that mirror
of the world

closing
the door
to the earthly
clamor

sitting
alone
in the silence

that the
vacuum
will vanish
immediately

that we shall
surely
be sated
with The Divine

to reemerge
to a reality
where everything
points
to God
