The Naming of Things

Find a place to stand
where you can see,
beyond all horizons,
the whole inhabited

Let the eyes, the ears, the mind
of the universe
take no fixed point of view;
relinquish the naming of things;

wretch ego from the sick gut
of feeling and see no outsiders;
cry at the resistance of things
to being of one mind, but know
it only takes one mind.

Step down: Stay.
Help shake the credulous from their wonder.
Give them stout shoes and
put their minds on full alert.
Ask them what they want.

Do not fear, tell them.
It is here. It is here.
The thing. The very thing;
it is here.
