We Might Have To Medicate You

02 Dec
Resist your temptation to lie
By speaking of separation from God,
Otherwise,
We might have to medicate
You. In the ocean
A lot goes on beneath your eyes. Listen,
They have clinics there too
For the insane
Who persist in saying things like:
“I am independent from the
Sea, God is not always around 
Gently
Pressing against
My body.”
 
 
From: ‘The Gift’ by Hafiz, a Sufi poet.
Translated by Daniel Ladinsky
