The Morning Reading: "our one work is to open ourselves"

from Another Night in the Ruins
- Galway Kinnell

How many nights must it take
one such as me to learn
that we aren't, after all, made
from that bird that flies out of its ashes,
that for us
as we go up in flames,
our one work is
to open ourselves,
to be the flames?
