Like Holy Wine

Like Holy Wine

Not to become wise
In my own estimation
For as is written
Those who exalt themselves
Will be humbled
While those who humble themselves
Will be exalted

The gifts of the world
Are all perishable
But gifts from GOD are irrevocable

I greet you as my soul
Because everything depends
Upon everything else

This, while all the glass clinkers
And ideological drinkers
Ask you to bow at their shrine

And all the tail gazers
And surreptitious winkers
Fell for your beauty
Like drunken sailors
Who lost track of time

I fell for your beauty
Like a poem
Like an art form
Like an illumination
Like a benediction
Like wisdom

Like holy wine
