Prodigal Valentine

Among the varieties
of moral experience
is that atheist Christian
or Buddhist who wants to go back
to some imagined birthplace
or drowned ancient temple
when the only way is forward
if it means anything at all
since he came to stay
the manifestation of each day
and night is what becomes
of his body and his blood
just so we can recognize
an older brother of light
has come to rescue us
