"I Close My Eyes" by Joe DiMino

I close my eyes,
My heart let to touching—
Senses out and not in
Intensifying the physical:
Make holes in them—even what we worship:
The sight—for all its beauty,
And the body which only translates—
Consumers are not our nature—
Let us seep
And not contain—

Drop by drop into greater vastness…
