sun setting
towards delirious cactus
towards stinging tobacco
take me where?
permeable membrane
no cell wall
between me and the Universe
between me and God
fire of Life
blood of Life
cruising the centuries
cruising Eternity
one happy lamb
one spotted dog
trotting down the lane
trotting down the country lane
between here and Nowhere
between now and then
where was I
all this time?
flying in the clouds
swimming down the river
to be human
for a body
to nest in
to fertilize
to grow Love in
and patience
and forgiveness
to sprout hair
and then lose it
to breathe a breath
into the lungs
and then take no more
all for the chance to Love
all for the chance
to Love
