I saw in every point, gladness. Streams of it.
Wait, hold the pendant
round my neck. The one I searched out
for you, whisper in dark
for you. Understand, faith,
walking towards. You don’t see
my walking towards. Last night the moon half-bitten,
like lips as I wished. Understand, silence.
In time. It shuttles me. The image of you
when I didn’t see. Speak, you say.
I am. Understand. There’s a shadow-
girl underneath moon, cups for us.
Drink. You and you.
Both. When I wrote to You,
it was always you. The day I knew
a shell. Stood there, your hand.
Understand, faith saw through
every point, a gladness, forgiven.
Shell-this. I search for you. Whisper-heart,
understand, in all corner of dark,
pendant round my neck,
our love, streams of it, ready to Be.
In dark, Drink,
Speak to me, you say.
I am, I am, I am.
