The Book

The truth is out.

These five letters

do not simply lean

one against the other

atop a dusty wooden shelf.

The Word does not sleep


in a nightstand drawer

like a holy grail

patiently awaiting

a pilgrim's progress

while he gazes

at his own reflection

thinking he's found it.

Truth is erupting

In gold and green

Through asphalt.

It's galloping inside

of hearts and bodies

and singing in pages

and in voices and blooms

Ripping veils off of

eyes that use it.

Purifying with flames

in a distracted and



Psalm 19: 7 - 11 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
