ESTRANGED HANDS
(4/10/18)

speak
not
of your charity

otherwise
such acts
become only
self

your family

your neighbors

the IRS

need not
know

our good works
are for God
alone
to enjoy

and yet
they earn us
nothing

we are
just as close
to The Divine
with no actions
whatsoever

we merely
need
to clear
the clutter
between us

dead
to the word

dead
to ourselves

all being
becomes us

we become
all being

received
unto
our heavenly
estate
