Verse: The Evangelist

If you
are light
then illuminate
or leave me

Don't do anything
if you cannot
immobilize me
with some tenderness
with your
inviolable embrace

is treacherous
the night
like wine
to the bottom
of the glass
in capillary strands

my heart
is an egg
that is cracked
and all the love
that it contains
slowly drains
from me
but you
can't see it

No, you stand
naked as silence
in the critical light
when all I want
is for you
to fix me
