I pace my ordinary day

and fill my ordinary mind

with wonders I could only

take as vision or hallucination

because if I could avail myself entire

I'd be consumed in flame and smoke

and arise with Elijah's chariot

as one of his wheel's spokes

here then is where I contain

the wonders and measure them out

in the instants my being lives

in the vehicle of my ordinary mind

enduring my routine fate and relieved

I can only occupy the place where I stand
