SATORI STRUGGLE
(8/29/18)

Brother Bollocks
does not
understand
why spirituality
seems to come
so easily
to others

while he
must strain
mightily
for even a fleeting
perception
of The Divine

they
tell him
to relax

to let
God
flow over
him

easily

naturally

but when
he stops
concentrating
he is flooded
by a myriad
of worldly images

worldly sins

only
when he labors
intensely
do those
mundane matters
fall
to the wayside

Brother Bollocks
wipes the sweat
from his brow

continues
working

continues
walking

hoping
for just a taste
of fugacious
grace
