Scripture

The role each plays 
in life light weighs, 
each given script 
far cry from strict: 
of such design
lets each define
it to his choice
 — words, tone of voice 
one’s privilege, 
unbound by hedge; 
mode in which each 
delivers speech,
style and manner
of small matter — 
if its substance
bears script’s essence
 — letter’s merit 
naught to spirit’s — 
soul of scripture;
its sole stricture.
