all saints day



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

to become

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.
