Somehow, this poem seemed particularly appropriate when I read it this morning.
The Sun in Drag
You are the Sun in Drag.
You are God[dess] hiding from yourself.
Remove all the “mine” – that is the veil.
Why ever worry about
Listen to what your friend Hafiz
Knows for certain:
The appearance of this world is a Magi’s brilliant trick, though its affairs are
Nothing into nothing.
You are a divine elephant with amnesia
Trying to live in an ant
Sweetheart, O sweetheart
You are God[dess] in
