It Is Enough To Enter
--Todd Boss 
the templar
halls of museums, for 
example, or
the chambers of churches,  
and admire
no more than the beauty  
there, or
remember the graveness 
of stone, or
whatever. You don’t  
have to do any
better. You don’t have to 
the liturgy or know history  
to feel holy
in a gallery or presbytery.  
It is enough
to have come just so far.  
You need
not be opened any more  
than does
a door, standing ajar.
