At a Colin McCahon exhibition

Thank you.

At last is seen
what should have been seen
before: art is language,
artist, translator.

Leave that.

Take fourteen,
take it to the power of one,
to the power of the pain of one,
Ah, see — that is The One.

Move on.

Now that you have gone
beyond the fourteenth station,
(the last one, thank God)
you must know: will Elias come
to save us and if he does,
will it change anything,
will it change us?
