Sabbath

occupy the space you have today, set aside

the space God gives you, bids you take

and shut the door, turn off the lights, ignore

the intruding voice of all you lack, must have

for one whole day believe—in this time and place—

you have all you need, say it loud enough to hear

in a day defined by lack: without verbs take it back
