HOLDING THE MYSTERY

 

Al Zolynas

 

to the light was all

he ever really wanted to do,

 

though he’d been misled by the world,

trained to dissect it, analyze, report

 

back on its myriad components…

and he had done his best to satisfy

 

that ancient conditioned hunger,

dutifully throwing his word nets around

 

the ineffable.  All the while, the mystery

merely shone brighter, as if in mockery,

 

reminding him that brightness and shine

were what Love looked like stripped out

 

of her alphabet-stitched garments.

Standing naked, at last, the mystery

 

simply said “Look!” and “Embrace!”
