I Know How You Feel

I know how you feel.
I am the oval-faced
angel in the cloudless sky.

I am the voice of
ultimate kindness,
leading you into the free land.

Nothing stirs in this
land. Plants do not bend
in the wind. Worms move steadily.

I know how you feel.
This is why I'm here.
inside your thoughts: God's implant.
