My heart keeps our love in secret until my poems are done then I will give my body over like an open book.
I will lie down in the fire, wrapped in linen let them burn me to ash crack open my skull; let the wind carry my love for you across the waters all around the world until even the stars hear of it and all of the heavens know our story before it fades.
It’s no matter that our bodies have to die
the same as all others
and the lights go quiet in the night
because our love
will be spread by distant galaxies
until we are born again
to be found in each others arms
as parched flowers
someone planted in the soil
of a distant
but hopeful planet.

Under the Bodhi Tree sleeps a Shoalin monk in his distant dream while I wait for him to gather the strength of the tree in his bones and pray he will forgive me
for the thorns.
