Gnosis (is) Enough: Two Poems by Michael Graber

God did not create the universe and its
phantom forms for you to occupy yourself
with these or to be infatuated with, but
He created them for you to know Him.
Know the Beloved.
Attain gnosis.


What is being born between us
was here before and will be again.

Is this poetry or mysticism? Neither
if your whole body doesn’t shiver,
molting under this slow embrace -
neither if you don’t stagger though
you haven’t drunk wine - neither
if you don’t puddle into primal
soup in love’s cocoon - neither
if the sun never catches the moon.
Your watch won’t work here, so
measure time by the quality of kisses.

What is being born between us
is a way to embody the spirit
as it leaps into different dimensions
like a child playing hopscotch.

Your phone, forget it. Your money,
meaningless. Here, the currency
costs the idea of where your life
was going. Welcome to the frontier.

You must map your heart
for treasure, to know what is
being born between us.



You never know
when the sun will rise
in a way that breaks you.
One, pure glance - one
whiff from the wine shop
that puts the sun to sleep
every happy hour - enough!

Let’s surrender to the rhythm
of surprise. Abandon all
we know, so we rise
in such unspeakable bliss
we’ll have to start a new religion
to begin to describe it, or
a poet may find a pause
more profound than words.
