A Thin Curtain Of Gray Silk - Poem by RIC BASTASA

between this and that
there is a thin curtain of gray silk
that serves as a divider
between this despair and
that bliss

it is not your hand that
sets it aside
not your your mouth that
finally speaks the word

it is someone else
the mighty one
that one that puts it
this way and that way
