We All Sit in God’s Classroom


Why Carry?

Why carry a whole load of books
Upon your back
Climbing this mountain,
When tonight,
Just a few thoughts of God
Will light the holy fire.


For a While

Hafiz
We have all come to the right place.
We all sit in God’s classroom.

Now,
The only thing left for us to do, my dear,

Is to stop
Throwing spitballs for a while.
