Choices
by Ida Fasel

What if you didn’t know
    even snails could hurry up
    when Noah said IT’S TIME?

What if you didn’t know
    one and one makes one?

What if you didn’t know
    even firefly light over
    the music stand could bring
    the score to such a pitch
    the diapason closes full in you?

What if you didn’t know
    Dame Julian of Norwich said
    But all shall be well,
    and all shall be well,
    and all manner of things
    shall be well?

What if you didn’t know
    the language of God is
    the same as that of the violet:
    I return your love?

What if you chose to remain
ignorant all your life?
