There is no obligation
but clear deliverance, darkly lit,
of how we danced in a scented daze,
this knight and queen in checkered [[space]],
amazing [[grace]] to find our [[soul]] can rest
in place or lost outside, still [[be]]tween
the narrow gate, open [[now]]
that no [[self]] is found to speak
since the messenger told his truth,
cosmic [[silence]] our transcendent function
of eternal mind, eternally musing
one message.
