What is Not There

sometimes replace
one bad habit
with another.

Hard drugs
with cigarettes,

with nail biting,

TV watching
with internet addiction.

But this
is seeking
for what is not there.

Like a man
wandering lost
in Death Valley

Ignoring all
the flashing
neon signs:


It is time,
Dear One,
for you
to unstop your ears,
and listen.

The Beloved
will tell you
what to do.

His voice
at first
is much softer that
the angry screaming
have been listening to.

But if you listen
to Him only
the Desert
