We have a huge barrel of wine, but no cups.
That's fine with us. Every morning
we glow and in the evening we glow again.
There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace,
close both eyes
to see with the other eye.
Open your hands
if you want to be held.
Sit down in this circle.
Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd's love filling you.
At night your beloved wanders.
Don't accept consolations.
Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover's mouth in yours.
You moan, "She left me." "He left me."
Twenty more will come.
Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?
