If I could say anything I liked to you / it would be about how you have brought / possibility into my life. Vistas / and unimaginable stretches of massed ideas. / A guided tour of the numinous / flashed from your eyes / not reflected / like burning cities seen across water. /
A tool forged and quenched, forged / and quenched. Some heat required / some exchange of blood and muscle / for the offering. /
As I bring my best to the temple / so I implore you, bring your best.
So we may be hallowed / So we may be blessed / Be fed and be the meal / may your bones feed your grandchildren.
