    The Contact’s Prayer

    I wish I knew

    the things you do, and

    could comprehend where

    my beginnings

    began.

    Would you bring me

    into the circle

    of your understanding?

    But, please …

    Take me not faster

    nor

    farther than

    the light of my own lamp

    will reach—I’m afraid of the dark.
