naked consummation.

I heard that you can

unfold all the ribbons

binding your true nature, one

by one, unravelling them, sometimes

just loosening them a bit, tugging

on their middles and edges,

at times with great force

(but usually with a middling kind of pressure)

and that when those ribbons

are lying of the floor of


you can see your true face

and it shines.

It shines.

You can do

this with the fingers of awareness

and the scissors of wisdom,

I heard.

That true face:

maybe it overwhelms the world

like the sun and the moon

coming together

at last.
