My Plea






This body is too small 
to hold it all
ancient stories—yours and mine
deep, deep wells 
of tangled ache.  The light
so very tired 
of being pressed down, kept in
condensed.
Let's gather it up, this burning orb
of brightness
let it breathe, let it breathe
in our open palm.  Until it warms away
the you
the me—the every thing
until there is only wordless river 
of calm—lulling
lulling us
awake
