ThoU and I/I and ThoU

*

Come to me with your coal and diamonds:

with your armor and secrets;

with your sweet water;

with the vast blue sky in your mouth and ear;

with your worn and eternal humanity; and

with your desire to open your blood

to love.

*

Come to me with your root and veins:

in mud and debris;

in fear and bitterness;

in uncertainty and tears;

in shreds and shame; and

in belief and faith

to love.

*

Come to me with your hands open:

to breathe;

to fall;

to rise;

to break open; and

to speak and sing

to love.

*

Come to me with touch and a soft candle:

for no language;

for music;

for unbound universes;

for unmade bed cathedrals; and

for joy

to love.

*

Come to me to release the divinity:

of all the colors and tastes and sounds of true blue;

of once excruciating scars;

of nourishing and unspeakable sex;

of gentle caress; and

of being found

to love.

*

As a gospel song of freedom,

I will respond the same

for you.

*

To, for and with love.
