I found my love and labor there,
My house, my rainment, meat and wine,
My ancient rage, my old despair-
Yea, all things that were mine.

I saw the spring and summer pass,
The trees grow bare, and winter come;
All was the same as it once was
Upon my hills at home.

Then suddenly in my own heart
I felt God walk and gaze about;
He spoke; his words seemed held apart
With gladness and with doubt.

"Here is my meat and wine," He said,
"My love, my toil, my ancient care;
Here is my cloak, my book, my bed,
And here my old despair.

"Here are my seasons: winter, spring,
Summer the same, and autumn spills
The fruits I look for; everything
As on my heavenly hills.”

Why do we think our metaphors will save us? The world is only itself. Time is just our way of imagining it. At least the bee has ultraviolet vision to see everything we can’t. We have to light our dark spaces with the sputtering matches of our words.”

—Richard Jackson, from “About this Poem,” from Out of Place: Poems (The Ashland Poetry Press, 2014)

So, like treasure found at home,
That I have gained without fatigue,
My enemies are helpers in my [spiritual] work
And therefore they should be a joy to me.

"Okay! I hate you!

You — glow — with some kind of — thing — I can’t acquire that — this — thing — sort of — glows off you — like a veil — in reverse — you’re like anyone's soul mate."
