New sonnet: "Emproxified"


Dedicated to Allie, Tiffany, Connie, and Jessie

To see there is to be there -- or at least
to wish it so;  the path to paradise
is narrow, and yet wide when our increased
attentions smooth the way. There is no price
upon it; its familiarity
and sweet vulgarity attracts our base
dimensions and the shared humility 
of wantingness.  We comprehend the grace
and beauty that surrounds it, but to view
it accessed and revealed invites our need
to take his same direction. If we do --
if we are juxtaposed so that our seed
is there emplaced by our imaginings,
then we sense what a real immersion brings.
