I am poured out like water, gently
flowing over the cusp
of something.
Sometimes a surge,
sometimes a drip, drip, hesitant drip
of life force.
Not slipping away but flowing
inarticulately
on.
Not rising up, but taking the humble,
river-­like route,
streaming away,
downhill.

There is no head of steam,
no pressure from within,
no tension, energy or effort.
There is no need to push.
No need to reach
upwards.

I give myself downwards, as stream gives
to river, as river to sea. page140image3664

Let me not pollute thy vastness
with my solid, insoluble stuff. No, let me
disperse in thy
forgiving wholeness.
Let me be free
in thy great
sea.
