“A Parable for Thomas”: a poem by Santi Tafarella

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 .

Beauty is noticing the lonely

Boulder on yonder hill casting

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              .

In your way a long black

Tongue declaring that, yes,

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               .

The sun is rising, and you

Need not ascend yourself

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                .

The hill, nor touch me,

To still not understand
