I Am I Am

Today I am a marble in a big blue pool.
I am perfectly me. I am perfectly you.
I am perfectly we as we sing together.
I am perfectly always and simply forever.
I am I am
I am I am
Muscle and bone are not my own.
They are just a body that I call home.
And we are lovers. We love together.
We are perfectly always and simply forever.
We are I am
I am I am
In a world blinded by greed and division.
We are exactly where we need to be.
Pain insulated by the television.
They don’t see the power in we.
They are I am
We are I am
I am I am
Today I am a marble in a big blue pool.
I am perfectly me. I am perfectly you.
I am perfectly we as we sing together.
I am perfectly always and simply forever.
I am I am

A Nap After the War

She fits like a missing word in an ancient acronym
We always knew what she looked like, but never understood her beauty
And now that we’ve found her, now that her part is perfectly seen
We were teenagers together and we compare scars
The war is behind us, the machine is dead
Battle wounds that took up residence in our noses are replaced with nectar
The memory of this pain only makes the present taste that much sweeter
Neck tar nectar red bird feather smoke of never we slumber together
Milk on wounds
Familiar dream
Mother of my child
We sleep
The hours of ours
We’ve all the time in the world
Holding her bare form next to mine
Even this is not close enough
Awake for the first time
We revel in our sleep
Eyes open for the first time
We share this warm bed
