Isle of Mind

Just as the Manx man thinks
To himself, "traa dy-liooar," a gong
Chimes, calling the monks

To robed attention and away
From their desultory prayers.
There is time, to be sure,

But only in the sense of something
Else in the place of what was always
Just a placeholder being meditated.
