The Ancient Modern

Certain / Joshua Alan Sturgill

A certain wisdom suggests
we must say
everything we think,
hold nothing back.

A certain wisdom insists
a lengthy silence
should precede
every spoken word.

A certain wisdom knows
an Other World we may enter.
But first, we must leave
all thoughts and words behind
