tsunami

As a Light that always goes
In front, if I take you by the
hand, will everything be suddenly
simpler? The people, nicer, their
wordy evils turned to hardened lava
under their tongues, yes, as everything
is done by the hand.. take my hand
under this lamplight of love,

as from the black clouds, rubies and gems
pour out , as from my eyes your bottomless
sorrows fall into me; without your face before
me, as beneath each darkness of my eyelashes,
gardens bloom from blood rains pouring
down around my booted soul,

my love, what does a bubble
in the ocean know about the sea?
what does a handful of sand know
about the desert? Books are destroyed,
statues pulled down, banned
poems break like glass ..what would
even a child learn from all of this desolation?

I just want to be as a child for you,
as a Light that always goes
in front, I will take you by the hand
until we are both transparently, light
as light as places that have no names
in being, as essence as far from evil
just so you can stop and wait for me.
