Examen

Forget everyone else.
Consider yourself.
Gather up all your leftovers.
Your baskets full of
should-have-been.
Bring them to a still place
late on a clear day.
Give thanks for it all.
You will feel like a fool
and you may well be.
Give it anyway.
You will leave dissatisfied.
But you will have witnessed
the multiplication of the stars.
This is not a miracle.
Yet it might be enough.
