A PERSONAL FAVORITE

[My old friend Jamie Rose posted this to her Facebook page and reminded me of this poem from It Takes One To Know One (though the version she posted didn't have the indented lines as this hopefully will):]



HEAVEN & HELL


1. HELL

Hell is
           no escape.
                             And no acceptance.


2. HEAVEN

Ah, heaven.
                      Heaven is
                                          more complicated.





[There was also a footnote: "As Merton points out, everyone gets Dante's Inferno, but who talks about, or even reads, his Paradiso?"]
