Crossing the threshold guarded
By angels is not so hard 
As you might think. They’re rather

Friendly, on the whole.
They care about appearance.
Mentioning Rilke,
Milton, or Dante,

Flatters but embarrasses,
Because they’re pleased to be seen
As important, but
Frankly “shrecklich” frightens them.

I like them. I’m free to talk
Of ghosts and gods, their cousins, 
With them. They give me a pass.
