Meditations on the Vishuddha Chakra

Meditations on the Vishuddha Chakra
so many heads
            in this one head
so many arms
            on this body
so many fingers
            counting prayers
so many hands
            holding skulls
            or prods
            or tridents
each socket, tip, and prong
vibrating with meaning
at the station of the throat
thousand of miles
thousands of years
from the sense of it all
take this and eat of it
            I have a feeling/
            the urge to speak
take this and drink
Sherry Robbins, from Pilgrimage
