I Say it is the Grinning Thing

What is the higher self?
I say it is the grinning thing
that leaps down from its shelf --

cavorts upon a handy stick

for you to cart around
to shove it here & here & there
until the heaven’s found

that trembles mutely everywhere

but won’t reveal its glow
until the higher self resorts
to putting on a show.
