Not Here

 Next Poem          

There's courage involved if you want
to become truth.

There is a broken- open place in a lover.


Where are those qualities of bravery and
sharp compassion in this group? What's the
use of old and frozen thought?

I want a howling hurt. This is not a treasury
where gold is stored; this is for copper.


We alchemists look for talent that
can heat up and change.


Lukewarm won't do. Halfhearted holding back,
well-enough getting by? Not here.
