inertia

delight is dangerous;
one can get used
to the lover’s hallowed words
that to look at the self
in the mirror
during the inevitable single
afterward
can be devastating.
suddenly the familiar
is obscene
and the known is mundane
and unrewarding.
yet how right to believe
in the religion of the self
when there is someone
who worships you,
and you love
so much to believe
you are one.
we are all gods,
and we know this in our hearts,
but how far we fall from grace
when the believers no longer
visit our temples.
what loss, what shaking
beneath our feet!
