no mystic symbol

no mystic symbol nothing so absurd

you wait for vain ceremony to end

meanwhile are bored and straining to attend

keeping in mind each false thing that occurred

not being halted in no way deterred

by each of those you know who might intend

the simple path of truth to twist or bend

or hide in shimmers the awakened bird

not much is taken but not much is due

to each of us this day except the right

to find our home where each desire is left

beside the place where no one else could rue

lost hopes and pain unhealed at fall of night

nor words all stripped of any human heft
