How to enjoy the voices of contraction


The voices of contraction may be very loud.
Round the table, confusion reigns.
In the democracy of your being,
fear and neediness may carry the majority vote.

Invite the Buddha to the table.
He may say nothing, but his presence brings calm.
From that space the way forward becomes clear.
Even the voices of contraction may start to sing.
