Other Ways To Pray

Smiling we know
is a form of meditation.
Weeping is also
a kind of prayer.
Being anxious and fully
feeling the sensation
in your belly
without naming it
is very deep yoga.
Being angry and
letting the fire burn
a hole through your forehead
is profound samadhi.
Be the hole.
There are other ways to pray.
This day is sacred
because the full moon makes
everything collapse
and go wrong.
Angels of dust and womb-blood
conspire to stop your mind
from thinking clearly
so that you will finally
fall down
like a tangle of compost,
grieving, sighing, mumbling
to the darkness.
