We must learn to double read life
repeat what was said earlier, then
hear the presence of unsaid absence
inside the limits lived, as words
take shape from silence, filling
empty spaces within, to recognize
our dependence, to become aware
setting aside our prejudices, prying br> open the heart to visualize extensions
dividing the differences, peel away veneer
masks of quality hiding baseness, to expose
ourselves to humility, spirit flesh duality.
