the lunar now

 But now let us cross over
and invest this world where
everything is lunar

no fear

Let our first act this morning
be this resolve: I shall not fear
anyone on earth...
I shall not bear ill-will towards anyone.
I shall not submit to injustice
from anyone.

to reach

A friend of mine begins a holiday.
I wish her, and I wish all of us,
the time and space to reach.

A lung.
Deep and full.
