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!”
