Stuffy in Here, Wide Open Out There


 Stuffy in here

 Wide open out there

 This navel contemplation’s

 Not quite so liberating 

 As one might think

 Know thyself

 – yes –

 So far as inward speculation’s turned outward.

 My own capacity for interesting

 Only so when meshed with yours

 Not for comparison’s measuring’s sake 

 – this is deadly –

 But for celebration’s sake

 All our varied bits

 – differences and samenesses too –

 S’what completes the tapestry

 The back looks thready, chaotic, tattered 

 When focus is on individual threads

 Turned over, the together stitches 

 Reveal the most beautiful story

 The wonder-skill of the weaver 

 In His way of bringing them together
