*****

Often I cannot:
Recognize a face
Remember a name
Do simple math
Keep track of what day it is
Or go the right direction on my own block

I can:
Write a flawless sonnet
In fifteen minutes

I can:
Tell the difference between right and wrong
To you
Coherently and justly

I can:
Fast
Keep vigil
Meditate

I know:
How to pray
To surrender
To wait

I can:
Communicate with animals
Disembodied energies
And angels

I do:
Refuse venal benefit,
Choosing to speak instead
For those to whom it is not offered

Often I am judged to be:
Stupid
Unrealistic
And self defeating
