Undiscoverable: Lord’s Prayer

Undiscoverable new country
Hiding under the world’s skin
We are led
To believe.

There was, we hear, a one-time surface-dweller
Who plumbed the depths – and then?

How else will your will be done
Unless you plunge into us
Out of the frying pan
Baptising yourself with fire, dust, ashes
Each time,
Become the in-living sustainer,
The guilt-for-peace exchanger,
Path prover, actual rescuer,
Metaphor mixer.

It is all yours, we are led to believe.
A little proof in our pudding please.
