“When we are with you,
what fear of loss could we possibly have?
You change every grief to gold.
You give us the key to each world we come to.
You sweeten the lips of those we love
and open their mouths in desire.
You are beyond all guessing,
yet within each guess.
Hidden, yet beginning to be revealed.
We have fallen into the sugar shaker.
We are the ground beneath you.
Let someone else describe the sky.
Hold us in silence.
Do not throw us back into some discussion.
