Do not blame me
if you have memorized me
without distilling my essence.
you cannot plot me like a point.
I do not graph
well enough for my x's to meet your y's.
with the summary of my being.
I will not suffer the indignity of arrows
and bullet points.
But I promise
that if you learn me
from the senses of your heart
if you explore me with your conscience
and if you hold my lessons as your truth
excellence will witness our joy
in the cusps of paradise
we have stolen from God's hands.
