On the Pleasures of Said (Part 5)


PSALMS (Part 5 of 5)
By Said

lord
when you arrive
we will be light
bread and water
 the table is set and the door opened
come and take your place among us
free me of the belief
that you are only faithful from a distance
and speak with me
 in the unharried language of animals
who from far off lie in wait for us
with their unadulterated hunger
