Another Silence

Don't cover your beauty with a veil.
Inside the absence of noise there is another silence.

Not the quietness of the flesh, but the seed of light.
It is Christ resting in Mary,
it is why there are stars in the darkness,
the tremor of a poem before its words,
the place where angels churn the milk of emptiness
into the golden butter of your body.
Don't cover your eyes, your lips, your hair.
Take off the veil and dive naked
into the ocean of your heart.
