Those who don't feel this love pulling them like a river.
Those who don't drink dawn like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don't want to change, let them sleep.



This love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind
that way, sleep on.

I've given up on my brain,
I've torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away. If you're not
completely naked, wrap
your beautiful robe of words
around you,
and sleep.
