Reader to Writer
We’re done with poet as priest,
artist as intercessor,
creator as interpreter
between Mystery and ourselves.
Your robes are clothing,
you grew up down the street,
you fart, you’re one of us.
I myself have chased Eros, fled Pan,
trudged hard dark miles
to grapple with a blazing Presence
that nearly annihilated me.
Sit down, let me pour you a cup,
and let’s gossip about the gods!
