Simone Weil Remix

I’m a little teapot;
To accept a void
in ourselves–short and stout–
Is supernatural. Here is
the handle,

Grace
fills empty

spaces,

Here is the spout. When you tip
me o-
ver,
It can only enter
where there is a
void.

Hear me shout!

And it is grace which makes
this void,
Just tip me
over, fuller than all
fullnesses,
And pour me

out.
