Brother, I await you outside the window
amongst the night traffic zoom and scent of pine,
story sitting on the throat’s knife edge,
the truth unable to roll out from blood fear.
Mother, I feel your harsh breath outside my soul.
Father, your praise is hidden in the hot stones.
Brother, the moon slices you,
tripling fear across the unforgettable,
a memory haunting a thousand of my nights.
How can I love the ghosts of those beings I hate
or hate the shadows of things I truly love in light?
Brother, I know what I can only imagine.
In the night, I know your hand is there, all in mine.
I imagine the cold breath of stones.
