      One or Two Things

      1
      Don't bother me.
      I've just
      been born.


      2
      The butterfly's loping flight
      carries it through the country of the leaves
      delicately, and well enough to get it
      where it wants to go, wherever that is, stopping
      here and there to fuzzle the damp throats
      of flowers and the black mud; up
      and down it swings, frenzied and aimless; and sometimes


      for long delicious moments it is perfectly
      lazy, riding motionless in the breeze on the soft stalk
      of some ordinary flower.


      3
      The god of dirt
      came up to me many times and said
      so many wise and delectable things, I lay
      on the grass listening
      to his dog voice,
      crow voice,
      frog voice; now,
      he said, and now,


      and never once mentioned forever,

      4
      which has nevertheless always been,
      like a sharp iron hoof,
      at the center of my mind.


      5
      One or two things are all you need
      to travel over the blue pond, over the deep
      roughage of the trees and through the stiff
      flowers of lightning--some deep
      memory of pleasure, some cutting
      knowledge of pain.


      6
      But to lift the hoof?
      For that you need
      an idea.


      7
      For years and years I struggled
      just to love my life. And then


      the butterfly
      rose, weightless, in the wind.
      "Don't love your life
      too much," it said,


      and vanished
      into the world.
