Temple Bell Failure

Temple Bell Failure

Whatever happens after the bell’s third chime,
if anything happens after the bell’s third chime,
is almost never what he’d come to expect,
almost never something that comes easily or
flows like it should after the third chime fades.

Whatever it is that used to hurt still hurts.
New hurts arise but old hurts never fade.
Nothing that’s new stays new forever, so
all new pains must do what all new pains
must do: age and fade but never disappear.

Temple wisdom fails. Chime after chime,
page after page after chapter after book,
no new wisdom makes itself known.
