spirit of the verse

i write my poem and fold it into phylacteries
carefully fastening the tiny black boxes 
onto my forehead and round my arm

this is to connect my poetical mind 
to my poetical heart
and all of me to the poetical god

the tefillin keeps me from straying 
and keeps my senses alert to
the spirit of the verse
