Elevation

eye

The world attracts you through your senses, and as long as you do not see the Sacred in the objects of your senses, you live in an awkward position, which scarcely helps you in procuring your spiritual elevation.

Through

Angels strip you

They take everything

Japanese women in white

Covering their mouths

Giggling as they pull

Off your clothes

.

The door’s just big enough

To crawl through

More of a tunnel really

.

On the other side

There’s a throne

Gold vaguely translucent

And she’s sitting on it

Legs crossed

.

It’s the kind of a room

A throne would be in

The light diffuse

Through stained glass

.

On your knees

You confess everything

Every sin

Every desire

Every regret

.

She uncrosses her legs

You enter her

And you

Are reborn
