escape power

Poem #33 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

around us
is what seems to be
noise and movement

the busy-ness of urgent action
shouted loud
until it is inescapable

and yet

when thought is turned
it is possible to find solitude
and tranquillity

to perform this inversion
is to exercise power
