The Wedding of White Lights
listen

Grace walks
 1
over the sandalwood.
 2
 
 
Glory rides his chariot on
 3
the twisted spines of paths.
 4
 
 
There is a guide among the dirt,
 5
and it lives inside its particles to lead
 6
the wheels that trample.
 7
 
 
There are two sides:
 8
the merging of egocentricity
 9
and beauty. There is
 10
 
 
the diverging of loneliness, and
 11
the creating of Wonder.
 12
 
 
The chariot has resigned to be a carriage.
 13
 
 
Grace, with
 14
her white dress, and
 15
 
 
Glory, with his handsome
 16
arrogance,
 17
the pride that leads
 18
his lions,
 19
 
 
ride this carriage.
 20
 
 
Grace,
 21
with her hand like oats,
 22
feeds the horses among her stable
 23
kindness.
 24
 
 
The hour is running
 25
late, in its race to catch both loves.
 26
 
 
Come attend the wedding:
 27
the Glories, sparkling in the risen sun, to watch
 28
 
 
the creation of one—
 29
Glory of Grace, Grace of Glory.
 30
 
 
Together, for eternity.
