How to Speak

Honor the mystery
by saying,
I don't know,
and watch
how the world
pays attention.

Say silently,
I will be what I will be,
and then go outside.
Extend your hand
to the first person you see
down on their knees.

Say nothing.
The ghostly moon
hangs in the night sky
regardless
of there being any watchers
on the ground.

Say something
because though
the earth will turn
without you
your words have never
been spoken before.
