Only the Devoted

 

It’s the devout who can see clearly
through the restless scramble
of competing significance,
embracing the hard nut of certainty,
and making irritable fact and reason theirs.

Empathy be damned.

They cancel their passport to mystery,
stuck safely forever en route
along the borderlines
of disconnection.
