and so the daily earthly toil

sustains our spirits after all

gives us the strength

to rise in the morning

then fall exhausted at night

and what portals of the fantastic

open in our gathered sleep

to renew the field of our living

there the grief we give each other

hammers home the illumination

that the shoe pinches and the heart bleeds

but the fleeting instant of timelessness

renews what joys and peace empower

the next 5 pm homeward crawl....
