PARADOX

PARADOX

It’s all reversal,

koan,

the small dark light:

 

The virgin

gives birth,

the creator of the cosmos

is born.

 

The blind see,

the deaf hear,

dumb speak,

lame walk.

 

The untouchable

are touched.

The lowly

are first at the feast.

 

The way is lost,

the truth betrayed.

The immortal is murdered,

the dead is raised.

 

 

 

St. Stephen’s Day, 2014

the small dark light is from Ursula K. LeGuin’s version of the Tao Te Ching, #36
