in your rags of love
...and the way forward always in the end
the way you came, the way that you followed,
the way that carried you into your future,
that brought you to this place, no matter that it had

out into the revelation, to have risked yourself
for something that seemed to stand both inside you
and far beyond you, that called you back in the end
to the only road you could follow, walking
as you did, in your rags of love and speaking in a voice
that by night, became a prayer for safe arrival....
