Step Back

Step Back
 
My head opens
 new life crowns
  and pushes out
The time for talk is over
   You make yourself impotent
            with your helplessness
There’s a hole in my head
            a shaft right through me
Certain times of year
            light shines
       straight in
     and finds its ground
 not just any light
            and on this ground
every other day or night
   a god crowns and squeezes
                        herself out
Stop talking
                        Watch out
Here comes another one
 
 
S. Robbins, from Readings
