      MANTRA MANTRA MANTRA
      by Ken McKeon

      Syllabic doorway,
      Open shut open
      I throat my heart and head together,
      No matter what the weather,
      Designate the dawn
      In deepest night,
      I say much to many,
      I speak
      Out the stars,
      Beginning with the sun,
      Our round of light,
      Ending with the sliding moon
      As it slips from sight,
      Of course, I’m retired,
      I climb up the stairs
      To fall asleep,
      I rise before the dawn,
      I turn the heater on,
      Ah,

      Wherever I have been,
      I’m back here now,
      Over the years,
      Silence has become
      The only song
      I ever sing,
      The start, the end,
      And all the in between.
