A Series of Revelations

A Series of Revelations

I am no longer afraid

of being open, tender

a gaping wound

_

For those who cannot look a god in the eye

Living in the quiet death between breaths

_

Take as many names as your mouth can carry

_

Take as many names as you need:

full with the silent pleasure of your most intimate offerings

this private joy

_

voices touch softly

in a pool of your own water

the way a shout becomes prayer

_
