Cross yourself

Cross yourself         

Cross yourself – routinely,
in whatever form customary –

puja, zikr, mea culpa;
yarmulke, psalter, prayer,

kusti, damru, nembutsu, suf . . . .
Cross yourself – quietly, discreetly;

go against the grain. 
Apply deeper wisdom,

a farther vision, visceral caution. 
Keep your balance to help

balance the world around you.
Cross yourself, o traitorous one,

and you may find after so long a time,
crossing yourself befriends the Friend –

befriends the Christ, the Other,
the One, befriends your Self.

O child of God, give only advice gingerly
gleaned from the words of the Master.
