In praise of Sisyphus

in the torment of Sisyphus
I think I find meaning
a presence of duty
perpetual motion
the tension of sinews
contracting, relaxing
the weight finely poised
a dribble of sweat
that intensifies purpose
perfection of balance
from rock into muscle
spine into pelvis
thigh into calf
toe into rock
I think this is love
