The world as it is

A Prayer Like Gravity




The world as it is,
just as it is,
without embellishment,
without ornament superfluous,
is already mind-fuckingly 
awesome. 

If you don't think so,
then you must 
see the night sky 
from a mountain top
at 10,000 feet
on a bitter cold
and wind-scoured
spring night.

The Milky Way
will rip your 
mind open.

You can see
the lines of 
your own hand
in that light

and you will know
what they mean.
