Three Thousandth Valentine

Ever since Plato
Had it in for the poets
And artists who were his best
Listeners and lovers
There has been this war
In heaven about the indignity
Of singing and dancing
Before the divine imagelessness
At first it’s shocking
To feel one’s reverence
Deepen into joy and then
Movement and sound
Are you losing your mind
Yes you say
I’m giving it up to the lord
