Lofty: A Poem by Collette Kristevski

Which of these Truths?
Which will you bind,
which will you loose?
To know is simplicity,
to conclude, to deduce.
To wonder is to first fall on one’s knees.
I do not mean to feign humility,
and perhaps I bruise these delicacies.
For holy things are not for all to speak.
Nor before all can they be told.
It is not so modest.
It is not so low.
Indeed, the task is too lofty for me.

Death to Despondency Part IV: A Poem

Euphoria delays herself
as Lethargy runs free
and tethers to my binded soul
that aching reverie.

I told her, “Come, please make your home,”
time creeps immovably,
but wistful dreams and slothful gaze
prolong my Apathy.

The Wonder that once caressed my soul
now sings Despondency,
and still the clock hand whispers slow
against His “Come and be.”
