Empty yourself of that wrenching wail
that rises in your heart
and fills the abyss within you,
pour its screaming music
into your work, spill it
from your footsteps,
and, pressing your ribs together
squeeze its last rich drops
out into the art piece called your life.
Only then will peace
dark and still and ancient
whisper the cosmic secret of love
to your soul.
