This moment is not before, or after, or even in between.
It is not a rehearsal, or a show.
The program notes are blank, no tickets have been sold.
But look! It is all you have –
Your wealth, your poverty,
Your fears and hopes,
All that you have avoided, everything you sought
Is it not wonderful?
Play in it; rest in it; let it hold you.
But grasp at it and it is gone.
