Finished by Half

 

I am finished by half with this task.*

Like all discipline, the discipline has been good.

Good discipline, chastening.
 

Each day bending my consciousness to the task,

Trying hard to find something quick and bright,

Or trying hard to find something graced with joy.

Itís not easy to find something quick and bright,

Or to find something graced with joy

In a world where divine indifference appears

To trump all high mountains and savory incense

Set up to call the gods out of their caves of indifference.
