The way is empty

  The way
is empty,
a bowl,
being used
without
filling
deep
as the womb
of the world.
  so snub
your sharp
points,
unloosen
those tight
knots
reduce
the glare
in your eyes
tamp down
the dust
of today
be pure
and obscure
like the well's
depths
exist
forever.
Whose
child?
You're
the image
of the whirl
before God
