our lacks it loved,
our lacks and lesions,
our lonely prose,
our din and dark, deflated cohesion,
pledges of joy,
of sons, of daughters,
every girl, every boy;
so softly sailed,
cradled, sailed on an inner sea,
end to end, top to toe, nose to knee,
sails glowing, souls moving, thoughts growing.
sunny and stirring,
end to end, after and during;
they are the one, the one we love.
