Cast All Your Votes For
Dancing

I know the voice of depression
Still calls to you.

I
know those habits that can ruin your life
Still send their
invitations.

But you are with the Friend now
And look so much
stronger.

You can stay that way
And even bloom!

Keep squeezing
drops of the Sun
From your prayers and work and music
And from your
companions’ beautiful laughter.

Keep squeezing drops of the Sun
From
the sacred hands and glance of your Beloved
And, my dear,
From the most
insignificant movements
Of your own holy body.

Learn to recognize the
counterfeit coins
That may buy you just a moment of pleasure,
But then
drag you for days
Like a broken man
Behind a farting camel.

You are
with the Friend now.
Learn what actions of yours delight Him,
What actions
of yours bring freedom
And Love.

Whenever you say God’s name, dear
pilgrim,
My ears wish my head was missing
So they could finally kiss each
other
And applaud all your nourishing wisdom!

O keep squeezing drops
of the Sun
From your prayers and work and music
And from your companions’
beautiful laughter

And from the most insignificant movements
Of your
own holy body.

Now, sweet one,
Be wise.
Cast all your votes for
Dancing!
