“The Image of Your Body” (Rumi)

You have made it out of the city. That image of your body, trembling with traffic

and fear, slips behind. Your face arrives in the redbud trees and the tulips.

You are still restless. Climb up the ladder to the roof. You are by yourself a lot. Become the one that when you walk in, luck shifts to the one who needs it. If you have not been fed, be bread.
