Who’s With You, Mind?

by Ramprasad Sen

Who’s with you, Mind?
And what are you waiting for?

Your poor tub of a body
Is grinding on the world’s sand bar.

Move, move!—hoist the sail
With your guru’s name and shove off.

Prasad says: Six Passions and all,
Shove off or darkness is going to bear down
And take you amidship.

—from Grace and Mercy in Her Wild Hair, by Leonard Nathan and Clinton Seely
