Help Us Understand

When your tongue has
fed voraciously
on every morsel known to man
and with pants rolled up, your exfoliated feet
have stepped on powdered sands
When your eyes are aglow with the colors
of many a foreign sky
and your skin radiant with potions and nutrients
D E and K
When your limbs are
stroked and caressed by velvet and silk…
and by many a woman and man
When you walk into a room anywhere in the world
and the world in concert bows
When all you need do is reach out
with one uncertain hand
Tell us, pray,
why then do you embrace the darkness?
