MISSING INGREDIENT

The profound and the profane
Have always come to me
Holding hands


For all these years
I’ve welcomed the profound
Into the crucible of my life

And dealt with the profane
By ignoring it then berating it
And then ridiculing it


With each supercilious
Thought and action
I lost something I couldn’t identify

It felt like Life sometimes
Sometimes like Love
And I never could tell which was the case


I hadn’t known
I was to alchemize the pair of them
To hear the punch line to

The Cosmic Joke
