Wash Your Cobalt Front Doors

Wash your big beautiful front doors
Painted in cobalt blue
All nine engraved wooden squares
Painted in infinite flowers
Look out into the street
Watch the people walk by
Not liking, not disliking
The gleaming golden rose of love shines in the sun
and blooms in your heart.

Here is the world—
Don’t get taken by it.
Stay right here.
You are a vase in God’s House.
He is the soft dirt floor under your feet
and the roof over your head.
