Let Us Praise Together

The particular obscures
the absolute. Undoing it
is not easy. You have to own
your heart full of hatred.
You have give assent
to your own destruction.
What you love
will leave you,
and what you leave
you will fall madly
into love with.

Beloved, I am not here
to lead you out of shadow
into light. The night
falls praiseless:
let us praise it together.
Let me moisten each soft fold
of you, let me stay
on my knees forever.
Together we will remember
what we were sworn
not to keep to ourselves.
