all saints day
When no one is not a saint
I am willing to have all of you
place hands on me
and heal me.
Place eyes on me
and see me.
Touch your ears to the voice
of the saint behind the saint.
of this saint
within this village.
Two open palms on my chest over my heart
The great impact.
You reveal me.
You have inspired me
the brave fool who rides the lion
The beast who holds my soft body.
The one with flaming mane and steady gaze.
I could not do this without you.
This is our pilgrimage through the gutters
of an ancient city once magnificent
still majestic. This kingdom.
